Zoe Saldana In 'Rosemary's Baby' Remake…They Better Not Cut A Single Hair On Her Na'vi Head
In case you had somehow missed the terrible birth announcement, NBC, in all their infinite wisdom, is making a miniseries of the 1968 Roman Polanski classic, Rosemary’s Baby. This is a terrible idea, we all agree, right? What do you remember of the movie, really? Besides some creeping period appropriate horror, the amazing Ruth Gordon, that ad campaign on the last season of Mad Men and Mia Farrow’s haircut? On the whole, not promising fodder for a remake set in modern Paris and starring Zoe Saldana.
I quite like Zoe and I’m excited to see what she does when she’s free James Cameron’s CGI yoke, but this isn’t promising. A made-for-TV horror miniseries? Jessica Lange you ain’t, Zoe. Speaking of American Horror Story, the Rosemary’s Baby remake is being co-written by the FX drama’s James Wong. He also wrote Final Destination so, you know, watch out for Parisian busses.
Though this is all around terrible news at least we can breath a sigh of relief that Jennifer Lawrence and her new hair are not involved.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
