“Rosemary’s Baby” To Be Reborn?


Speaking of the Dakota apartment building in New York (see below), another movie associated with it — “Rosemary’s Baby” — is getting set for a remake, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “Baby” was a best-selling novel by playwright-author Ira Levin (“The Boys From Brazil,” “The Stepford Wives”). The book was adapted in 1968 into a much-loved Paramount movie directed by Roman Polanski that starred Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes and Ruth Gordon, who won an Oscar for her role. The story follows a young couple who move into a gothic New York apartment, where they are befriended by their elderly neighbors. After the woman becomes mysteriously pregnant, she discovers that the neighbors are part of a coven of witches and that her husband has allowed her to be impregnated by the devil in exchange for a successful career.
