Zoe Saldana, Star Trek's current Uhura, has just inked a deal to star in NBC's upcoming mini-series adaptation of Ira Levin's 1967 suspense tale, Rosemary's Baby. Saldana will play Rosemary Woodhouse, a young pregnant woman who believes she -- and her unborn baby -- are in the crosshairs of a satanic cult. Mia Farrow rose to stardom as the leading lady in director Roman Polanski's classic 1968 film version of the material. Oscar and Emmy-nominated Agnieska Holland (Europa, Europa, Treme) will put Saldana through her paces in the four-hour mini-series, which will be set and shot in Paris (rather than Manhattan).
Saldana has also completed two other projects, namely Nina and Guardians of the Galaxy. She plays legendary singer Nina Simone in the former and Gamora in the latter. Both are due out this year.
