“Rosemary’s Baby” is getting quite the revamp from NBC. Zoe Saldana has been tapped to play the iconic role, previously played by Mia Farrow in Roman Polanski’s 1968 cult classic.
In the upcoming remake, Saldana will play a young wife and expectant mother who moves to Paris with her husband, and soon suspects that he and the tenants in their building have devious designs on her unborn child.
“Zoe has proven that she is one of our most gifted actresses and we think she has the perfect combination of spirit and gravitas to take on the title role from Ira Levin’s infamous novel,” said Quinn Taylor, executive vp movies, miniseries and international co-productions at NBC Entertainment. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event miniseries is off to a great start.”
Saldana will be billed as an executive producer, along with her sisters Cisely and Mariel.
