The cast includes Nell Tiger Free, Tawfeek Barhom, Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson and Bill Nighy.
The original The Omen–directed by Richard Donner from a screenplay by David Seltzer–stars Gregory Beck and Lee Remick, and follows an American ambassador who believes his five-year-old son is the Antichrist. The movie spawned three sequels and a 2006 reboot.
