ShockTillYouDrop reports that Zoe Saldana has been cast in the NBC TV miniseries version of Rosemary's Baby. Saldana will be playing the role of Rosemary Woodhouse, as made famous by Mia Farrow in the original Roman Polanski film from the 1960's.
The four-hour miniseries is an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling novel by Ira Levin. The new miniseries will be relocated to Paris where the show will also be shot.
In this new iteration, Rosemary and her husband move to a Paris apartment with a darkly storied past. After she becomes pregnant, Rosemary becomes suspicious that both her husband and their enigmatic neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of their child.
The miniseries will be directed by Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa, Treme). The teleplay is being written by Scott Abbott and James Wong (American Horror Story).
