The four-hour NBC mini-series adaptation of Ira Levin's 1967 novel, "Rosemary's Baby" now has its lead. Variety is reporting that Zoe Saldana will play the pregnant wife of a fame hungry actor with really nosey and devilish neighbors.

Announced back in December, it appears that the mini-series will stay true to the novel, "'Rosemary’s Baby' centers on 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."

Saldana will also serve as one of the executive producers of the Lionsgate-produced series. According to Quinn Taylor, Executive Vice President, Movies, Miniseries and International Co-Productions, NBC Entertainment, “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. With Zoe leading the cast under the direction of Agnieszka Holland, this reimagined event mini-series is off to a great start.”

Do you think she's a good fit? There is no word on when the mini-series will premiere but we'll keep you posted.
