Julia Garner’s ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Prequel ‘Apartment 7A’ To Launch In Fall On Paramount+

Paramount+ said Friday that the original film Apartment 7A, a psychological thriller starring Julia Garner (Ozark) and directed by Natalie Erika James (Relic), will premiere this fall exclusively on the streamer in the U.S. and in select international markets.

When a struggling young dancer (Garner) 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. Set in 1965 New York City, the film tells the story prior to Roman Polanski’s horror classic Rosemary’s Baby, exploring what happened in the apartment before Rosemary moved in.
