Back in July word came out that NBC was working on a remake of Rosemary’s Baby according to Deadline. NBC was also working on a remake of Stephen Kings Tommyknockers which is easily one of the worst books to be adapted to TV so far.
Long before NBC was working on a remake of Rosemary’s Baby Platinum Dunes the folks behind some of the most profitable modern horror remakes were also planning to remake it. Both the NBC and Platinum Dunes plans have died. But fear not astute horror fans LionsGate has stepped up to the plate and is now prepared to help NBC do what Platinum Dunes could not. They are going to remake Rosemary’s Baby as a 4 part mini series and filming begins in January.
Woo hoo! [ Wait… not really]
According to The Hollywood Reporter the project will be based in Paris and will be as noted a 4 part mini series with the twist being the new location and no doubt a sexy and dapper 20 something cast. NBC Entertainment President told THR quote;
“As we move into the event movie and miniseries space, Rosemary’s Baby represents the kind of attention-getting, surprising project that will make noise for us,” NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said. “The story has been updated and moved to Paris, but it’s faithful to the spirit of Ira Levin’s classic novel. This is a compelling tale wonderfully told.”
The 1968 feature film by the controversial and talented Roman Polanski is about a married couple who soon discover that their pregnancy and new neighbors have some scary motives.
