Filming is set to commence in Paris in January, although casting details have yet to be announced.

The screenplay will be directed by Oscar and Emmy Award-nominated Agnieszka Holland and written by James Wong (American Horror Story) and Scott Abbott (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge).

Speaking about the project, president of NBC Entertainment Jennifer Salke said: "As we move into the event movie and miniseries space, Rosemary's Baby represents the kind of attention-getting, surprising project that will make noise for us.

"The story has been updated and moved to Paris, but it's faithful to the spirit of Ira Levin's classic novel. This is a compelling tale wonderfully told."

The novel tells the story of a young married couple who move into a flat. The apartment has a tumultuous past, and after getting pregnant, Rosemary (portrayed by Mia Farrow in the movie) starts to believe that everyone around her has sinister intentions for her child.
