NBC boss Bob Greenblatt revealed at the Television Critics’ Association summer press tour that the network is planning a re-telling of Ira Levin’s novel, which provided the fuel for Roman Polanski’s 1968 chiller. It’s the story of a young wife (Mia Farrow) who becomes mysteriously pregnant and discovers it’s all part of a terrible supernatural plan. The new version, which has yet to begin casting, finds a young couple moving to Paris and undergoing similar horrors.
That’s not the only title NBC want’s to make a reboot of but Stephen King’s 1987 novel The Tommyknockers is getting a reboot as well. The tale of a small Maine town whose inhabitants fall under the sway of a buried UFO already had the miniseries treatment back in 1993 but will surface once again.
