Get ready for a reboot of Roman Polanski‘s Rosemary’s Baby.
NBC is bringing the movie, which is a Ira Levin novel adaptation, to television in mini-series form. Production on the series is slated to begin in January in Paris, France.
The series is rumored to be 4-hours long.
NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke shared some insight on the project, “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.”
No official premiere date or casting member news has been given at this time.

Courtney Love is looking healthier than ever on the new issue of FASHION magazine.
Love dishes on style, her upcoming book, and what she thinks of the artists of today.
Check out some of her Fashion interview quotes below.
On her life as a style icon:
“I got ostracized by [fashion] after I went to rehab in 2006. After I got out, no one would dress me and I sucked it up. I went to Paris, got on a plane and I was only invited to two shows. Two shows! YSL and Stella. Then I met my stylist Panos [Yipanis], who got me to sit down with Riccardo Tisci and he was more than happy to dress me during the biggest weight gain of my life. He renewed my faith in fashion… It’s really about who you surround yourself with in your career. The next time I went back to Paris was in 2008 and I got invited to a hundred shows and the minute [Givenchy creative director] Riccardo [Risci] said, ‘she is my muse,’ everyone threw clothes at me. That’s just fashion 0 it’s such a reactive community.”
On her upcoming autobiography:
“I keep wanting to write this one chapter about a man that I was very much in love with but I just don’t want to name him. I used pseudonyms like Mr. Cat – this guy who was a billionaire and our relationship ended weird.”
On her views on now rock stars:
“Being a rock star today is almost like a politician. You have a platform where you can say things and the good ones like [Bruce] Springsteen, [Michael] Stipe, and Bone use it for good politics.”

Kanye West is features in the new issue of W magazine.
In an article titled,”Kanye West: The Transformer,” the “Yeezus” rapper opens up about Kim Kardashian, his narcissism, being rich, his music and much more.
Reporter Christopher Bagley sat down with West to chat about the aforementioned. Check out some of the highlights from their interview below.
On how agreeing to attend one runway show led to the song “I Am God:”
West was informed that he’d be invited to a widely anticipated runway show only on the condition that he agree not to attend any other shows. “So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote ‘I Am a God,’?” West says. “Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go. Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.” West is not smiling as he says this, and his voice is getting louder with each sentence. “You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show! To even think they could tell me where I could and couldn’t go is just ludicrous. It’s blasphemous—to rock ’n’ roll, and to music.”
On why he named the song “I Am God:”
“I made that song because I am a god,” he says finally. He laughs for a second, then stops. “I don’t think there’s much more explanation. I’m not going to sit here and defend shit. That shit is rock ’n’ roll, man. That shit is rap music. I am a god. Now what?”
On W’s 2010 cover of a nude Kim Kardashian:
“I loved the fact that it happened, that it disturbed people. I loved the fact that it put those curves right inside that Hamptons house, that there’s some Hamptons husbands who had to cover that up.”
In his narcissism:
“On one end, I try to scale it back,” he says. “Because I don’t want to close any of the doors needed to create the best product possible. But my ego is my drug. My drug is, ‘I’m better than all you other motherfuckers. Kiss my ass!’ ”
On an unidentified woman threatening to release a raunchy video of her and West:
“For the most part, I’d rather people have one of those home videos than some of the paparazzi photos that get published,” he says. “At least I recorded the shit myself. That tape couldn’t have hurt me in any way if it came out—it could only have helped.” He finally decided against releasing it, but don’t be surprised if he changes his mind. “Now, I just do exactly what I want, whenever I want, how the fuck I want,” West says. “ ‘Fuck you’ is my message.”
On helping Kim K. revamp her closet:
“Nobody can tell my girl what to do,” he says. “She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from.” Since virtually everything Kardashian wears is instantly broadcast around the globe, West adds, “one beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it.” This includes Kardashian’s inevitable stumbles. “For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, ‘This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.’ But she still sees this light of beauty.”
On being comfortable:
“I’m not comfortable with comfort,” he says. “I’m only comfortable when I’m in a place where I’m constantly learning and growing.”
