Back in 1968, the horror film genre got a huge boost from Roman Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby” and in 2014 NBC will bring the story to primetime television.

According to a report, the Ira Levin novel adaptation will begin filming in January in Paris, France, with the goal of making a super-creepy 4-hour miniseries.

NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke explained, "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."

Executive VP Quinn Taylor added, "Ira Levin’s mesmerizing book was a groundbreaking reflection on how effective and influential a psychological thriller could be. We’re looking forward to adapting his incredible work and bringing those indelible characters to a new generation of viewers.”
