With NBC’s reimagined “Rosemary’s Baby” being set in Paris, it only makes sense they’d hire a few French actors, and first to be named is the César-winning former Bond girl Carole Bouquet. UK-born Christina Cole has also signed on to the project.
Per Deadline, Bouquet (pictured right and below left) has been cast as Margaux Castevet, a sophisticated and beautiful Parisian socialite who befriends young Rosemary, and Cole (pictured below right) will play Julie, Rosemary’s spirited girlfriend.
Bouquet, who won a Best Actress César (the French Oscar) for Trop belle pour toi (1989) is probably best known here in the States as Bond girl Melina Havelock in For Your Eyes Only (1981). Coincidentally, Cole appeared in Casino Royale (2006) as well as the upcoming Jupiter Ascending.
The four-hour “Rosemary’s Baby” miniseries, an adaptation of the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin, is being directed by Agnieska Holland (In Darkness, “Treme”). It stars Zoe Saldana as Rosemary; Patrick J. Adams as her husband, Guy; and Jason Isaacs as warlock/coven-leader Roman Castevet.
“Rosemary’s Baby,” produced by Lionsgate TV, is set in Paris. It was penned by Scott Abbott and James Wong and is exec produced by Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin, and David Stern with Saldana, Cisely Saldana, and Mariel Saldana producing.
Rosemary and her husband, Guy, move into a Paris apartment that has a darkly storied past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both Guy and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.
