“Is doing” is the correct way to put it, right? They’re doing it — no one has done it in a while, they probably don’t need to do it because somebody already did it exactly correctly, and this time they’re doing it in Paris rather than New York, but they’re really doing it! From Variety:

Nearly a week after the success of its live broadcast “The Sound of Music” musical, NBC has officially greenlit another version of a classic project and will be airing a four-hour miniseries adaptation of “Rosemary’s Baby.”

Scott Abbott and James Wong are writing the screenplay based on the 1967 Ira Levin novel about the problems that arise when a young married couple who move into a haunted Paris apartment. Agnieszka Holland will direct. Lionsgate Television is producing, with Joshua Maurer, Alix Witlin and David Stern serving as executive producers. The project was announced as in development in July.

Obviously the question is: WILL THE TANNIS ROOT NECKLACE BE FOR SALE ON THE NBC WEBSITE?! Just kidding, that’s not the question because you can already get one on Etsy. The real question is: who should have the misfortune of having her performance compared to that of Mia Farrow’s in Roman Polanski’s 1968 version? MEEEEE? I’ll do it! I have no experience and will do an incredibly bad job, but you’d really be making one young lady’s dream-ish come true.  If not me, though, then who? Brit Marling? Annie Clark? CHELSEA PERETTI? Let me know, and I’ll send the list over to NBC! And let me know if you need me, NBC! THX! #kelly4miaImeanRosemary

  1. It’s obviously Carrie Underwood’s job to lose.

  2. N(ewly) B(otched) C(lassics)

  3. They should just give it to Mia Wasikowska. She’s already got the right first name and we know she looks good with a pixie cut.

  4. See the point of the original was that NYC real estate is so hard to come by that sure, you’ll birth Satan’s child for a rent controlled 2 bedroom.

  5. Never have these words been truer:

  6. What’s old is new again, again.

  7. Jennifer Lawrence, obviously.

  8. I’m looking forward to Mia Farrow’s cameo scene when she walks by the baby carriage, shakes her head a little and says, “good luck, sister!” to the camera.
