Diversifying his popular You Tube channel into an extensive research based series, Producer Adi Shankar comes up with another interesting topic to discuss in the “Bootleg Universe Pitch Show”. The recent episode throws light on 1986’s dramatization of American psychological horror film, “Rosemary’s Baby”. Written and directed by Roman Polanski, the film is based on the bestseller novel by Ira Levin.
The commercial success of “Rosemary’s Baby” has been discussed time and again. In 1976, a sequel named “Look What’s Happened to Rosemary’s Baby” was aired on ABC which then acclaimed a huge fan following. A similar show appeared in 2014 on NBC, starring Zoe Saldana. “The Bootleg Universe Pitch Show” is a unique show of its kind and offers a wide range of ideas towards reboot and remaking of popular and all time hit franchises. Certain episodes featured projects that are already in progress including that of “Deadpool” and some are completely imaginary ones including reboot for “Jaws” by Michael Perry.
However, for the newest remake director Anthony Scott Burns offers a new location including Paris, for an entirely scintillating reboot. In the new version, Rosemary’s character will be based on a high school student being tortured by his peers. As per the director, the story portrayed in this way would be more gripping to the audiences. Burns explains:
“The huge preoccupation right now is teenage pregnancy and so for me: Rosemary’s Baby in high school where you take a girl who moves into a new town kind of shy one night at a party, maybe she’s been drugged or something, she blacks out in a couple of weeks and starts to get morning sickness and we’re like: oh my god, this girl’s pregnant”
According to Screen Rant the director precisely wants to capture experiences of high school. When asked about who would be the protagonist this time, for him the search for a new face is still in process. It will be quite interesting to see as if “Rosemary’s Baby” will be able to hit the psyche of our minds.
