      David S. Goyer, best known for his work on "The Dark Knight" trilogy, is producing with Kevin Turen through their Phantom Four banner.

      "The Omen" was directed by Richard Donner from a David Seltzer script. The film, starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick and David Warner, revolved around a young child adopted at birth by an American Ambassador and his wife who are unaware that the child is the Antichrist.

      "The Omen" was a strong box office performer with over $60 million and won an Academy Award for best original score for Jerry Goldsmith.

      Fox remade the movie in 2006, directed by John Moore and starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles. The remake - released on June 6, 2006, - was a respectable performer with $120 million in worldwide box office.
