It has been almost nine years since 6.6.2006 when The Omen, a remake from the 1976 movie that tells about young anti – Christ, was released in US theaters.
Now the young Damien Thorn, has grown and is ready to return in the new series Damien but this time will arrive on the small screen in the guise of Londoner Bradley James, better known around the world as the young Arthur in the hit tv series Merlin and in few days also on tv in the new iZombie series.
The cast, which includes also Omid Abtahi (Argo), Megalyn Echikunwoke (Die Hard, 20910) and crew have reached from few days Toronto (or as Bradley James wrote on his twitter account the iced planet from Star Wars) where the shooting will take place.
The Fox series is written by Glen Mazzara (Walking Dead, Criminal Minds, The Shield) and directed by Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Four Feathers) who apparently, according to what Bradley James thinks, has an annoying frying pan to use on the Sunday early morning.
For now the new TV series includes six episodes and a few days ago, it was announced that the first of them will be The Beast Rises.
We will keep you update and we wish to the cast and crew good luck, hoping the “heat” packed by Omid Abtahi from California may be with them in this project.
“When the Jews return to Zion, and a comet fills the sky, and the holy Roman Empire rises, then you and I must die. From the eternal sea he rises, creating armies on either shore, turning man against his brother, until man exists no more”
