Casting as been moving along quite nicely for NBC's upcoming "Rosemary's Baby" miniseries that will see the gorgeous Zoe Saldana star as Rosemary, the iconic young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband, moves into a Paris apartment that has a darkly storied past. Recently, both Patrick J. Adams, who is set as the male lead, and Jason Isaacs have both been cast to co-star alongside Saldana.
Now, Deadline reports French actress Carole Bouquet will play Margaux Castevet, a "sophisticated" socialite and wife of Jason Isaacs’ character, who takes a liking to Rosemary. And English actress Christina Cole (pictured, right) will take on the role of Rosemary’s lively friend, Julie. That's it for now! Hopefully we'll be seeing a lot more of this one soon!
The miniseries will be directed by Agnieska Holland from a screenplay written by Scott Abbott and James Wong. Here's how it goes:
This version of the story will revolve around a young married couple who move into a Paris apartment that has a haunted past. After getting pregnant, the wife becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their neighbors will have ulterior motives when her child is born.
NBC announced the “Rosemary’s Baby” mini in December, with Lionsgate TV attached to produce. The project is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 horror novel.
