Trailer for NBC's Rosemary's Baby starring Zoe Saldana and Jason Isaacs

Roman Polanski 's classic horror film ROSEMARY'S BABY is getting the mini-series treatment from NBC, something I was skeptical about from the get go. But, then they cast Zoe Saldana in the lead role previously played by Mia Farrow and I was intrigued. Once Jason Isaacs joined, I was sold. Now, a full trailer for the upcoming event series has been revealed and it looks pretty good....

Trailer for Roman Polanski's Venus in Fur is brimming with sexual tension

Roman Polanski is a director I cannot quite figure out. I mean, the guy has directed everything from noir like CHINATOWN to horror like ROSEMARY'S BABY with all sorts of distinct projects in between. His most recent film, VENUS IN FUR, adapts an award-winning play, much like his previous film, the excellent CARNAGE. Unlike CARNAGE, VENUS IN FUR is subtitled as the film was produced...

Zoe Saldana to star in NBC's Rosemary's Baby mini-series

While a remake of Roman Polanski 's horror classic ROSEMARY'S BABY sounded like a bad idea, NBC has nabbed a very interesting lead actress for their upcoming mini-series. STAR TREK and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY star Zoe Saldana will take on the role of Rosemary for the show. Oscar nominated director Agnieszka Holland will direct the new take on Ira Levin's novel which will transplant...

Agnieszka Holland to direct NBC's Rosemary's Baby mini-series

When NBC previously announced they were developing a mini-series based on Roman Polanski 's ROSEMARY'S BABY, we had no idea what to expect from it. Was it going to be a longer, self-contained series like AMERICAN HORROR STORY or was it going to be the traditional, two night network mini that was popular in the 1980s and early 1990s. Veteran TV director Agnieszka Holland (TREME, THE...

Face-Off: Rosemary's Baby vs. The Omen

We had an all-out Spanish-speaking beauties face-off last week with Penélope Cruz battling Salma Hayek in a fight that saw Hayek overwhelmingly dominate her buddy Cruz. After that sexy head-to-head, I’m going to take a breather and focus on this week’s Halloween theme and pit two of my favorite “devil-themed” horror classics against one another: Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic ROSEMARY'S BABY...

NBC to produce mini-series based on Rosemary's Baby and Stephen King's The Tommyknockers

Mainstream horror is all the rage these days with series like THE WALKING DEAD, GRIMM, AMERICAN HORROR STORY, HANNIBAL, BATES MOTEL and to a lesser extent UNDER THE DOME getting big viewer numbers and critical acclaim. On top of the news that CBS has renewed UNDER THE DOME for a second season comes the news that NBC wants in on the action with two remakes. The Hollywood Reporter...

Christoph Waltz to play the good guy in the gritty thriller True Crimes

Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz has been lauded twice by the Academy, once for playing a good guy and the other for being a villain. Waltz seems to have the ability to play both and I am still not quite sure which I prefer. His next project may be another chance at an Oscar and it would be for playing a hero. The Hollywood Reporter has Waltz taking the lead in the film TRUE...
