The antichrist is a grown ass man now as “Merlin” star Bradley James will take the title role in Lifetime’s drama series “Damien”, which will serve as a follow-up to Richard Donner’s classic THE OMEN. So, if you’ve ever wondered to yourself what kind of mess that soulless child would get himself into as an adult, now you’ll know. While I can't say that I'm too excited about this one, the idea of Damien as an adult does bring up some interesting questions, so I'll give it that.
Produced by Fox TV Studios, the six-episode “Damien” follows…
…the adult life of Damien Thorn (James), the mysterious child from the 1976 film who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages.
Damien, slated to premiere in 2015, is written and executive produced by Glen Mazzara via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield also serves as executive producer.
