NBC have cast their lead for the new 4-hour "Rosemary's Baby" mini-series, adapting the 1967 horror novel by author Ira Levin, with a 'genre' film favorite:

Actress Zoe Saldana ("Avatar", "Star Trek", "Guardians Of The Galaxy") will star as 'Rosemary', who gets impregnated by a demon.

"As we move into the event movie and miniseries space, 'Rosemary's Baby' represents the kind of attention-getting, surprising project that will make noise for us,"said  NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.

"The story has been updated and moved to Paris, but it's faithful to the spirit of Ira Levin's classic novel. This is a compelling tale wonderfully told."

Levin's book focused on 'Rosemary Woodhouse', a young woman who has just moved into the 'Bramford', an old Gothic Revival style apartment building with her husband, 'Guy', a struggling actor. The pair is warned that the Bramford has a disturbing history involving witchcraft, but they choose to overlook this. »
