NBC just rolled out the first trailer for its upcoming ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ reboot, and it looks like a doozy. The film, which is a remake of the 1968 Roman Polanski classic, features Avatar star Zoe Saldana in the title role.

In the four-hour miniseries Rosemary Woodhouse (Saldana) and her husband move into an apartment in Paris that has a troubled history. After finally getting pregnant, Rosemary becomes increasingly suspicious that her neighbors are apart of a satanic cult and are hell bent on getting her baby.

The miniseries is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 best-selling suspense novel and Mia Farrow started in the original film.

Despite the film’s storied past, Quinn Taylor, head of longform programming at NBC, has no doubt Saldana can make the role her own.

“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,” Taylor said. “With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event miniseries is off to a great start.”

    It’s going to be hard for non-African Americans to consume AA products or entertainment with all the negative attitudes towards them. First we’re all Black and the next minute we aren’t. You want to claim foreign Black people when they do good but change your mind on a whim.

    I think that if foreigners read the writing on the wall they should stick to their own, most do, and I understand why. Too many rules associtated with being Black in America. Even the Black people don’t judge you based on who you are or your talent, even Black folks will dislike you based on where you are frommand your skin color.

    I don’t have a problem with Zoe, I have a problem with remakes. They never seem to be as good as the original.

    I think the problem some people have with Zoe is the nagging feeling that she will be offered roles that black American actresses would never be considered for. I believe network executives view her as “acceptable” in the role of a white leading man’s wife and that there are VERY few black women in Hollywood they would even consider.

      but that is always the excuse for not liking the next Black actress. there is always something about “her” that really has nothing to do with her.

      Look at Sidibe. Black American women hate that she represents them too.
