Zoe Saldana books NBC miniseries
Zoe Saldana has started the year with a new gig! Deadline.com reports that Zoe will be starring in the NBC miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby.” If that title sounds familiar, the series will be a remake of the 1960s horror movie by the same name, which starred Mia Farrow.
For those not familiar Rosemary’s Baby, “Rosemary’s Baby” will be about a couple who moves to Paris and wind up in an apartment with a dark past and odd neighbors. Shortly after Rosemary gets pregnant, she beings to notice some suspicious behavior from her husband and neighbors, only to discover that they have ulterior motives for her child.
The network is confident that casting Zoe to star in the 4-hour miniseries was the right decision.
“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 NBC’s head of longform Quinn Taylor. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event miniseries is off to a great start.”
