Star Trek and Avatar actress Zoe Saldana has been casted for the lead role in NBC’s first and upcoming miniseries, ‘Rosemary’s Baby.’

The story is based off the 1967 best selling suspense novel by author Ira Levin. The story was originally adapted by Roman Polanski in 1968 with Mia Farrow playing the lead role, the same role Saldana will take on.

The st
ory is about a young, married woman who moves to Paris with her husband. The home they move into isn’t particularly pleasant and has a dark history. She finally becomes pregnant and develops delusions that her husband and mysterious neighbors are out to get and use her baby.

The miniseries was announced by NBC back in December. Oscar (Europa, Europa) and Emmy (Treme) nominated director Agnieska Holland, is on board to direct the miniseries, written by Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge) and James Wong (American Horror Story).

Her last on screen presence can be seen in Out of the Furnace starring Christian Bale. If you are interested in the 1968 original, it is available to stream on Netflix.
