Surprised though we were to see NBC updating horror classic 'Rosemary's Baby' as a TV miniseries, our interest went up a notch with the addition of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Zoe Saldana in the title role. Now, the cast continues to flesh out with 'Awake' and 'Harry Potter' baddie Jason Isaacs, as well as 'Suits' star Patrick J. Adams.
We knew that horror classic 'Rosemary's Baby' would look a bit different with NBC's upcoming miniseries remake, swapping the iconic New York setting for Paris, but it seems our new evil finally has a face ... or at least a womb. 'Star Trek' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Zoe Saldana will carry the load as NBC 'Rosemary's Baby' titular leading lady, executive producing the drama, as well.
NBC's recent live 'Sound of Music' success must have shaken loose a bit of courage, as the struggling network has officially committed to its horror miniseries remake of 1968 classic 'Rosemary's Baby,' after initially broaching the idea this summer. The new 'Rosemary's Baby' has officially set both its story and creative team, so what new horror will the miniseries craft?
Among the multiple ongoing developments from the Television Critics Association press tour, NBC has reaffirmed their commitment to doing more limited series, announcing several new projects. Not only will the network look to reboot horror classic 'Rosemary's Baby,' but also a new adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Tommyknockers,' a Hilary Clinton miniseries starring Diane Lane, and a 'Plymouth' story on par with History's 'The Bible.'
