Julia Stiles and "Scream" star Liev Schreiber are making horrifying plans to star in "The Omen 666," a remake of the classic series about a little boy who just may be the devil incarnate. According to Schreiber, all someone has to do these days is pick up a newspaper to realize that such an apocalyptic event might be closer than we think. "They're using the original [film's] David Seltzer script, and they're just updating it," he revealed. "As we look at Hurricane Katrina and all of these sort of catastrophic events that have occurred in the past five or six years, they're kind of trying to use all of those events to suggest that this is a sign of things to come. And they feel that now, in 2005 — or eventually in 2006 — it's almost more appropriate that we would find the coming of the son of Lucifer." While Schreiber and Stiles have been cast, young Damien has not. And according to Schreiber, he's not looking forward to meeting the young actor: "If we do find the kid that is the right one," he grinned, "it will probably be tough working with him." ...

With '70s heartthrob David Cassidy as her father and modern-day equivalent Jesse McCartney on her arm, Katie Cassidy knows a thing or two about dealing with sudden fame. Now the 18-year-old is preparing for something similar after filming high-profile roles for the horror remake "When a Stranger Calls" and a comedy that gave her two more famous parents. "I'm actually doing an Adam Sandler movie called 'Click,' " the actress recently reported. "I play Adam and Kate Beckinsale's daughter, which is awesome." When Sandler's character finds a remote control that allows him to fast-forward and rewind his life, his friends and family find themselves wanting to hit something other than the "play" button. "Basically [it's] a fast forward through time, and there's a younger version of me, a middle version of me, and I am the older version, and I play 25. It's weird to play 17, and then go in two weeks [later] and play 25; it's cool, though." ... One star down, three to go: Lacey Chabert, one of the materialistic ladies who terrorized a suburban high school in last year's blockbuster "Mean Girls," said co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams are too busy with their skyrocketing careers to revisit their most successful movie. But if they could ever find the time, Chabert revealed that she'd be willing to get mean again. "I would love to do a sequel. I don't know that there's much talk about one going around, but I had so much fun doing that, and then we got to go to the MTV Movie Awards and we won for best onscreen team there; that was so exciting." Chabert even offered up her own possible plot: "The Plastics go to college?" As if the concept of continued education wasn't mean-spirited enough already. ...

With a starring role in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," a scene-stealing performance in "Sin City," and the sixth season of "Gilmore Girls" about to hit the airwaves, 23-year-old Alexis Bledel is making a name for herself in Hollywood. But she isn't above taking on some heavier lifting in lower-budgeted projects. "I just finished an independent one called 'I'm Reed Fish,' " she said. "It was really fun to shoot. We had a young group, and it was a really great time." The drama, which also stars "Lords of Dogtown" breakout Victor Rasuk and "Hustle & Flow" actor DJ Qualls, focuses on a collection of eccentric small-town characters. "It's basically about Reed Fish, he's the main character, he lives in a really small town, and it all has a 'Napoleon Dynamite' kind of feel to it. It's a super-small town, and he has to figure out what his situation is with the girls that he's dating. I play his fiancee; it's sort of a slice-of-life kind of thing." After acting in several studio productions, Bledel said she leapt at the chance to reconnect with something more bare-bones. "It was nice; it's a fun change of pace. I've been looking to always do a lot of different things, so this was fun. [Independents] keep it interesting." ... Seven years after "Fight the Future," rumors of a second "X Files" movie still persist. According to William B. Davis, the infamous "Smoking Man," he's every bit as anxious as the still-loyal fans of the franchise. "I remember when we talked about it way back, just after the [TV show's] finale, but what kind of a film could I do?" he laughed. "One of the problems, of course, for me is that I'm very dead. I mean, they demolished me in the finale. I've come back from the dead a couple of times, but whether I could come back from that is a little hard to imagine." According to Davis, series creator Chris Carter has discussed making the next film a prequel, which would allow deceased characters to return. "His point [however] was that David [Duchovny] and Gillian [Anderson] are getting older, so how far back in time can you go? And now quite a number of years have gone by. So whether the cigarette-smoking man can make a believable appearance other than a ghost, I don't know ... [but] I'd love to do it. It'd be great." ...

Rugged 25-year-old actor Charlie Hunnam, whose performance in "Green Street Hooligans" is already drawing comparisons to Russell Crowe's early-career "Romper Stomper" transformation, says he's looking forward to developing his acting talents further with the help of some heavyweights. "I'm just about to go to England to join a couple of my fellow Englishmen and a couple heroes of mine: Gary Oldman and Clive Owen. [We're] going to be doing a film for ['Y Tu Mamá También'] director Alfonso Cuarón called 'The Children of Men,' " he said. "It's basically about the plight of the evolution of humanity in the years to come ... it's 70 years in the future, and it's been 18 and a half since the last child was born, because of pollution and poor diets and all the things that we're guilty of now, just slowly killing ourselves with. They manifest themselves into an inability for us to conceive, to procreate ... once we know that there's no more [offspring to be produced], the world very rapidly degenerates into absolute chaos." While describing his rebel villain character, Hunnam could barely contain his glee: "I'm going to have four gold teeth and long dreadlocks ... this is kind of my trilogy of madmen. I played the psycho in 'Cold Mountain,' ['Hooligans'] is a fairly psychotic character, and this one I'm doing now." Julianne Moore will also star in "Children," which is aiming for a fall 2005 release.
