The actress will play Rosemary Woodhouse, a young wife and would-be mother who moves into a questionable Paris apartment with her husband. Upon learning of her pregnancy, she begins to suspect that her husband and mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child. The character was made famous by Mia Farrow in the 1968 thriller based on the 1967 horror novel by Ira Levin.
“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 network exec Quinn Taylor. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event miniseries is off to a great start.”
Production on Rosemary’s Baby begins this month in Paris.
