Zoe Saldana is set to star in NBC’s remake of Rosemary’s Baby.

According to media outlets such as The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly, NBC announced Wednesday, Dec. 8 that the studio picked up the four-hour miniseries which is based on Ira Levin’s 1967 horror novel.

Saldana will portray the iconic role of Rosemary, a young pregnant wife who moves to Paris and becomes suspicious of her husband’s and neighbors motives regarding the future of her child. The role was famously played by Mia Farrow in 1968 with the direction of Roman Polanski.

Of Saldana’s involvement, NBC’s executive VP says,

“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 miniseries is off to a great start.”

Saldana can next be seen in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy out Aug. 1, and is best known for her sci-fi roles in the Star Trek franchise and Avatar.
