Rosemary's BabyThe same man planning a revival of the Friday the 13th series is now working to bring Rosemary’s Baby back to the big screen.

Michael Bay and the Platinum Dunes production company are currently in negotiations to refresh the 1968 film.  The movie, directed by Roman Polanski, starred a young Mia Farrow as a woman who unknowingly becomes impregnated by the Devil.  The original was adapted from a book by Ira Levin.

No writers have yet been assigned to this project.
