The hunt is on to find the world’s creepiest boy, as movie bosses search for a young actor to star in a remake of the classic 1976 horror film THE OMEN.
Studio chiefs at Twentieth Century Fox are hunting for the perfect demonic child to play the coveted role of evil DAMIEN, the son of SATAN, in THE OMEN 666.
HARRY POTTER casting director SUSIE FIGGIS is on board to find a very different child to the ones she selected for the wizardry saga.
Director JOHN MOORE says, “The casting process for a new Damien will be under way soon.
“The role is wide open to all young mothers who want their sons as the sons of Satan.”
The scary movie is set to be released on 6 June 2006, to link in with Damien’s spooky 666 birthmark.
