NBC’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby:’ Zoe Saldana Falls Down Satanic Rabbit Hole [Video]
We’re still not sure what to make of NBC’s buzzworthy remake miniseries of horror classic ‘Rosemary’s Baby‘ with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ star Zoe Saldana, but it won’t be long before the network births its latest vision of horror. Take a first look at the May 11 premiere with three brand-new clips from NBC’s take on the 1960′s Roman Polanski classic ‘Rosemary’s Baby’!
Though neither clip derives from the film directly, the first sees Rosemary taking advantage of the new Paris setting to investigate some of the ghostly landmarks, only to find its morbid Christian landscape taking a physical toll on her. The second sees even more trouble with the church in the form of a dead priest, while the third goes behind the scenes to preview NBC’s take on the horror classic.
Apart from Rosemary herself, the new incarnation features ‘Suits‘ star Patrick J. Adams as her husband Guy, and Awake’ star / ‘Harry Potter‘ baddie Jason Isaacs as the sinister Roman Castevet. Apart from shifting the New York setting to Paris, the four-hour NBC remake will otherwise follow the 1968 film’s plot of a young couple who struggle to become pregnant before the resulting conception drives Rosemary to increased paranoia toward her husband and the neighbors’ intentions for the child.
The first two hours of NBC’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ remake miniseries will air on Sunday, May 11 from 9:00 – 11:00 P.M., while the second half of the four-hour miniseries will air in the same timeslot on Thursday, May 15. Scott Abbott and James Wong (‘The X-Files,’ ‘American Horror Story‘) wrote the screenplay for the four-hour reboot, while Agnieszka Holland (‘Treme‘) directs.
