Zoe Saldana is working really hard these days. In addition to her already busy schedule, the newly married actress has just been cast to star in a “Rosemary’s Baby” remake for NBC, E! Online reports.
Zoe will be playing the title character, Rosemary, which was played by Mia Farrow in the original 1968 film. According to reports, the project will be produced as a miniseries. Filming is scheduled to begin in Paris later this month.
“Zoe has proven that she is one of our most gifted actresses,” said NBC’s Quinn Taylor in a statement. “We think she has the perfect combination of spirit and gravitas to take on the title role from Ira Levin’s infamous novel.”
“With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event mini-series is off to a great start,” she added.
The screenplay for the miniseries will be written by Scott Abott and “American Horror Story: Coven” writer James Wong. So far no names have been mentioned regarding who will be cast to play Rosemary’s husband in the series, but we’ll keep you posted as further details emerge.
