Last year, NBC took a classic film icon and successfully brought him to the small screen in Hannibal. Now the network is looking to continue that streak with an adaptation of Rosemary’s Baby, one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Thankfully this new version of the horror classic will be a four-hour miniseries and not a traditional TV show. Not much else is known about the project, but today it was revealed that Zoe Saldana has been cast as the lead role of Rosemary by the network, according to Entertainment Weekly.
As horror fans already know, Rosemary is a young woman who fears that her husband has entered into a demonic pact with their suspicious neighbors over the fate of their unborn child. There's much more to it than that, but it won't be spoiled here.
Rosemary’s Baby is most famous for director Roman Polanski’s 1968 movie adaptation, but it actually started out as a novel by Ira Levin. It hasn’t been revealed which source this miniseries will be inspired most by, but it’s been confirmed that the script will be written by Scott Abbott and James Wong, with Agnieszka Holland signed on to direct.
