“Avatar” and “Star Trek” actress Zoe Saldana will star in NBC’s new “Rosemary’s Baby” mini-series.
Mia Farrow played the same role in the first adaptation of Ira Nevin’s novel.
“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.”
The four-hour mini-series will likely air later this year.
