Filed right under 'completely unnecessary' comes news that 20th Century Fox is readying yet another remake of classic 70's horror 'The Omen'. Yup, even though recent news confirmed that Lifetime were busy working on horror series 'Damien' focusing on a grown up Damien as he comes to grips with his "demonic destiny" wasn't enough to deter Fox from more Omen antics. The studio will work along with Platinum Dunes to develop the re-remake based on Richard Donner's 1976 cult horror entry penned by David Seltzer. It was reborn into a subpar remake back in 2006 with Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles.
And as if you needed a reminder here's a quick reminder of the original 1976 version:
"Robert and Katherine Thorn seem to have it all. They are happily married and he is the US Ambassador to Great Britain, but they want more than to have children. When Katharine has a stillborn child, Robert is approached by a priest at the hospital who suggests that they take a healthy newborn whose mother has just died in childbirth. Without telling his wife he agrees. After relocating to London, strange events - and the ominous warnings of a priest - lead him to believe that the child he took from that Italian hospital is evil incarnate."
