The official logline reads,"A young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.”

The cast includes Nell Tiger Free, Tawfeek Barhom, Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson, and Bill Nighy. 

Filmmaker Arkasha Stevenson is behind the project. Ben Jacoby has a story by credit, with Tim Smith & Stevenson and Keith Thomas credited on the script. David S. Goyer and Keith Levine produced.

Gregory Peck starred in the original "The Omen", in which he plays an ambassador who believes his young son may in fact, be the living embodiment of the Antichrist. 

The movie, released in 1976, spawned two sequels, as well as a 2006 remake starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles. It also inspired a TV series, Damien, which lasted one season on A&E.

20th Century has been eying a prequel since 2016.
