Keen to get the miniseries on the air this year, US network NBC is wasting no time in finding a cast for Rosemary’s Baby. With Zoe Saldana already attached to star, Suits’ Patrick J. Adams and character stalwart Jason Isaacs have also come aboard.
Adams is set as Guy, the husband to Saldana’s Rosemary Woodehouse. The pair move into a Paris apartment that comes complete with charming features and a decidedly dark past. When Rosemary finally gets pregnant, she slowly becomes convinced that her neighbours – and her husband – have disturbing plans for the child.
Isaacs is taking on the role of Roman Castevet (played in the 1967 Roman Polanski film by Sidney Blackmer), the warlock leader of a coven who, unsurprisingly given that he leads a coven, is more than just your average friendly neighbour.
Agnieska Holland is handling directorial chores, working from a new adaptation of Ira Levin’s novel. Both new casting hires represent the NBC Universal company finding talent from within, since Suits airs on sister channel USA and Isaacs has a production deal with NBC and last worked for it on psychological cop drama Awake. Holland will be setting the cameras in motion shortly in France.
