NBC’s version of the tale moves the action to Paris, where young wife/mother-to-be Rosemary and her husband move into an apartment with a dark history. As time passes, Rosemary becomes convinced that her husband and neighbors have nefarious designs on her unborn child.

Saldana will also co-executive-produce the four-hour project with a team that includes Joshua Maurer (Rubicon) and Lionsgate Television. Agnieszka Holland (Treme) will direct, with a script by Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge) and James Wong (American Horror Story)

    • LMAO, that was the first thing I thought when I seen who they hired for the remake of a classic. I like that they are thinking in today’s culture. studios and networks want as much profits as possible so this means appealing to a wider demographic; the more people across the boards they get to watch their products the more money in their pockets.

  • I wonder if her husband will walk on stage and demand she quits or he’s divorcing her.

  • I like Zoe a lot, but I’m even more intrigued that they’re moving the action to Paris….instead of yet another movie in New York.

  • Whether or not this particular remake (once again by NBC) proves to be a success or not, one question seems to be clear. That is.

    “Does NBC have an original thought in its head??

    No really, do they have anyone on staff that is capable of anything approaching original thought or ideas.?

    All they seem to be able to do is copy old ideas. This makes what,. . about 8 or 9 remake ideas in the last couple of years alone.!

  • Would somebody tell her she doesn’t need to take every job offered to her?
    Avatar films, nu-Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy (and quite likely Avengers 2), plus a bunch of non-franchise films. Seriously, why does she even need to do TV let alone this likely bomb?

  • Really intrigued by James Wong as one of the writers.
