Reboot of the remake of The Omen is coming from 20th Century Fox

06.27.2014

Despite being rebooted less than 10 years ago and with an upcoming television series in development, 20th Century Fox has decided that we need a new take on THE OMEN and will be rebooting the acclaimed horror series.

Bloody Disgusting broke the news regarding the reboot that will be a co-production between Fox and Platinum Dunes. While the 2006 version from director John Moore did gross over $100 million, many disliked that it was essentially a carbon copy of the original film with minor updates to contemporary political references.

THE OMEN was originally released at a time of paranoia within the Catholic Church that spawned countless horror movies like this and THE EXORCIST. We have yet to see a horror movie in that same vein that has been as scary as either of those films, not even the sequels within those franchises. A television series about Damien growing up and becoming evil sounds intriguing in a BATES MOTEL kind of way, but I don't know how they could make another feature film without being a retread of a retread.

Here's hoping Platinum Dunes has a good idea for this one.

This might stand a slim chance of not being entirely devoid of merit if they make it a found footage musical comedy.

You know what Hollywood? You can go fuck right off.
When are people going to remakes flawed movies? Or bad movies with good concepts? Why do they insist on remaking great classics?

Why remake The Omen again? The remake that came out in 2006 (I think) was already shi**y enough. This will be another shi**y remake.

Asylum do it, but at least they're aware of it. They're trying to be ironic, they're mocking themselves.

Platinum Dunes just don't know any better.

This is a bad idea because it is rather pointless. Do find it funny however that people bitch and complain about all the remakes. Out of the, let's say 1000 movies made a year, maybe 15 are remakes? Maybe 20? Not a very high percentage.
