Julia Garner to Star in Rosemary’s Baby Prequel Apartment 7A

Julia Garner has been tapped to star in a prequel to the 1968 classic horror film Rosemary’s Baby titled Apartment 7A.

The psychological thriller was directed by Natalie Erika James (Relic), who also co-wrote the script with Christian White and Skylar James. It will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ before Halloween.

According to the official logline, the film will take place in 1965 New York City and tell the story of what happened before Rosemary moved into the titular apartment. “When a struggling, young dancer suffers a devastating injury, she finds herself drawn in by dark forces when a peculiar, well-connected, older couple promises her a shot at fame,” the description reads.

In a statement, Executive Vice President of Programming at Paramount+ Jeff Grossman said, “Apartment 7A is the perfect way to kick off the Halloween season. Director Natalie Erika James and the prodigious creative team have crafted a chilling and clever new entry into the genre.”

Written and directed by Roman Polanski, Rosemary’s Baby was based on Ira Levin’s 1967 novel of the same name. It starred Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes as a young couple trying to start a family while tormented by their suspicious neighbors.
