In This Version of “Rosemary’s Baby,” the Demon Seed is Hosted by an Interracial Couple.

One of my favorite 1960’s movies of all time is Rosemary’s Baby, a tale of financially struggling New York newlyweds whose luck inexplicably changes when they move into an apartment populated by who initially seem to be good-natured, sweet-but-nosy geriatrics. Guy, Rosemary’s husband, is a struggling theatre actor and Rosemary’s chief desire is to be a mom and homemaker. After moving into the apartment, Guys’s luck soon changes and the couple gets an influx of cash and opportunities. But they come with a pretty hefty price.

In today’s version of the tale, Rosemary is played by Zoe Saldana and Guy is played by Patrick J. Adams on an upcoming NBC miniseries.

I know I’ll be watching…not just because of the interracial element, but because it was such a damn good story when it was told in the 60’s. I’ll be sure to observe if this new version can do it justice.
