NBC just rolled out the first trailer for its upcoming ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ reboot, and it looks like a doozy. The film, which is a remake of the 1968 Roman Polanski classic, features Avatar star Zoe Saldana in the title role.
In the four-hour miniseries Rosemary Woodhouse (Saldana) and her husband move into an apartment in Paris that has a troubled history. After finally getting pregnant, Rosemary becomes increasingly suspicious that her neighbors are apart of a satanic cult and are hell bent on getting her baby.
The miniseries is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 best-selling suspense novel and Mia Farrow started in the original film.
Despite the film’s storied past, Quinn Taylor, head of longform programming at NBC, has no doubt Saldana can make the role her own.
“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,” Taylor said. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event miniseries is off to a great start.”
