NBC has found its Rosemary for the network’s upcoming 4-hour redux of Rosemary’s Baby! The always wonderful Zoe Saldana has signed up for birthing duties, much to the chagrin of racist morons who will no doubt complain that Rosemary was originally Caucasian!
Actually, given the fact that Rosemary’s Baby was originally a book, Rosemary was black and white! See? Everybody wins!
According to Variety, Saldana will play Rosemary, the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband, moves into a Paris apartment that has a darkly storied past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.
NBC announced the “Rosemary’s Baby” mini in December with Lionsgate TV attached to produce. The project is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 horror novel and is being penned by Scott Abbott and James Wong.
“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 Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event mini-series is off to a great start.”
Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern are executive producing with Saldana, Cisely Saldana, and Mariel Saldana producing.
