Zoe Saldana to Star in ROSEMARY’S BABY Miniseries for NBC

NBC has found its lead for the upcoming miniseries adaptation of Rosemary’s Baby.  We learned last month that the Hannibal network was moving forward with a miniseries based on Ira Levin’s 1967 novel Rosemary’s Baby, and now Variety reports that Zoe Saldana has been tapped to lead the project.  The story focuses on a young couple who move into a Paris apartment that has a “darkly storied past.”  After getting pregnant, “the woman becomes increasingly suspicious that her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.”  Director Roman Polanski famously adapted the novel in 1968 with Mia Farrow taking on the harrowing lead role, and this iteration has James Wong (American Horror Story) and Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge) penning the script.

The team behind the miniseries certainly has big shoes to fill, but Saldana—who will be seen later this year in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy—is a strong actress, so I’m interested to see her take on the titular role of Rosemary.
