Because TV movies, a remake, and various sequels evidently weren't enough for some people, Glen Mazzara now aparently wants to turn 1976 spawn-of-the-devil flick The Omen into a new TV series. Yep, former The Walking Dead producer is preparing a small screen follow-up, called - quite aptly - Damien.

The Hollywood Reporter has just announced that Mazzara will write a script and executive produce the series in which Damien's story will be told once again, this time as a series for Lifetime:

Centers on the film’s young boy Damien Thorn. Now an adult and haunted by his past, Damien is faced with a series of macabre events and must finally face his true destiny: he is the Antichrist.

Mazzara's new series is said to be in the very early stages of development and there's no word on how close they are to moving into production. I'm interested in seeing who gets cast in this retelling, though. Last time, Damien was played by an older Sam Neill, so no doubt they'll have a difficult time topping that.

Given The Walking Dead producer's background with the massively popular AMC zombie show, and considering his other movie-to-TV adaptation (of 2004's Oscar-winning Crash) was pretty awesome, I'm gonna go into this The Omen remake cautiously optimistic... How are you guys feeling about this one?
