Zoe Saldana will be Rosemary in NBC miniseries (VIDEO)

Now I adore Zoe Saldana. But cast as Rosemary from the hair raising classic "Rosemary's Baby"?


NBC saw something there and cast Zoe Saldana in the four-hour miniseries.

Zoe will play Rosemary, the very young patrician wife and soon to be mother who, with her schemer husband, moves into a Paris (New York's Dakota was the original locale) 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.

The original Rosemary, Mia Farrow, was just 21 when filming began.

Oh Ruth Gordon, we miss you so!

NBC announced the “Rosemary’s Baby” mini in December, with Lionsgate TV attached to produce. This is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 horror novel and the writers are Scott Abbott and James Wong.

For those of us who adored the original, here's a look back:
