NBC has found its Rosemary.

Zoe Saldana has been tapped to star in the Peacock’s four-hour miniseries, the net announced today. She will play Rosemary, the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband, moves into a Paris apartment that has a darkly storied past. After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.

NBC announced the “Rosemary’s Baby” mini in December, with Lionsgate TV attached to produce. Project is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 horror novel and is being penned by Scott Abbott and James Wong.

“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 Quinn Taylor, Executive Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event mini-series is off to a great start.”

Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern are executive producing with Saldana, Cisely Saldana and Mariel Saldana producing. Saldana is represented by ICM Partners.
