Zoe Saldana confirmed her role in the upcoming NBC miniseries "Rosemary's Baby," in which she will play Rosemary, a young pregnant wife who becomes convinced she is the target of a satanic cult.
The Latina actress retweeted three media sites that featured the story, including Variety.
Other projects in the work for Saldana are "Guardians of the Galaxy," and of course, the sequel to 2009's "Avatar."
Saldana also will be an executive producer for the "Rosemary" series, which is based on Ira Levin's 1967 horror novel. No premiere date has been announced.
The screenplay for the series will be written by James Wong ("American Horror Story: Coven") and Scott Abbott, and directed by Agnieszka Holland ("Treme").
The novel was first made into a film in 1968 and starred Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Ralph Bellamy, Maurice Evans, Sidney Blackmer and Charles Grodin, and directed by Roman Polanski.
