Star Trek into Darkness‘ Zoë Saldana will be starring in a remake of Rosemary’s Baby.
The remake will come in the form of a four-hour miniseries, to air on NBC.
In Rosemary’s Baby, Saldana’s character becomes pregnant, and becomes “increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.”
The original Rosemary’s Baby, released in 1968, was directed by Roman Polanski, and featured Mia Farrow as Rosemary.
“Zoë 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 Zoë leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this re-imagined event mini-series is off to a great start.”
Filming on Rosemary’s Baby begins later this month.
