Saldana As Rosemary



A poster showing Zoë Saldana as Rosemary Woodhouse in a television version of Rosemary’s Baby has been released by NBC.

Saldana will take on the lead role originally played by Mia Farrow in 1968.

RosemarysBaby032114The television version of Rosemary’s Baby will be four episodes, and is slated to air later this year. The show is currently shooting in Paris.

Directed by Agnieszka Holland, Rosemary’s Baby will also star Patrick J. Adams as Guy Woodhouse, Rosemary’s husband; and Jason Isaacs as Roman Castevet, leader of the coven with whom Guy is associated.

“The story has been updated and moved to Paris, but it’s faithful to the spirit of Ira Levin‘s classic novel,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. This is a compelling tale wonderfully told.”

    Once again, Hollywood proves that it is afraid to take chances on original ideas, and instead goes the remake route by re-introducing different versions of classics to a different generation. In the case of Roman Polanski’s adaptation of the 1968 film it is a controversial one. As controversial as the 1968 film was when it was released during that ‘shock year’ of the that turbulent decade.

    The film industry really needs to focus more on original material and less on remaking classics. If the studios want to re-introduce a classic to an entirely new generation, then they can always re-release it in cinemas or have some huge film festival(much like the TCM film festival).

    Remakes are just a cheap way to make a buck. They sacrifice the artistic integrity and quality of the original.

    Talk about a desecration of the cinematic and television arts.
