See why we’re having instant coffee:
• Zoe Saldana is set to star in NBC’s remake of Rosemary’s Baby—based off the 1967 novel of the same title. The horror miniseries will begin shooting in Paris later this month and will be compiled into a four-hour miniseries. “Zoe has proven that she is one of our most gifted actresses and we think she has the perfect combination of spirit and gravitas to take on the title role from Ira Levin’s infamous novel,” said Quinn Taylor, executive vice president movies, miniseries and international co-productions at NBC. There’s no word on when it will air. [Hollywood Reporter]
• The long awaited Tupac Shakur inspired play, Holler If You Hear Me, will begin its Broadway run on June 19th with previews beginning on May 26th. Although the play isn’t about the late rapper, it will use his music to tell the story of two childhood friends growing up in the midwest. Fences’ director Kenny Leon will direct the production.

• First Lady Michelle Obama’s fabulous pre-birthday vacation in Hawaii at Oprah’s mansion is turning into a nightmare for some nearby neighbors.

• Diddy and Diageo have teamed up to buy DeLeón. The business deal is the latest project for the superstar. “The joint venture with Combs Wine & Spirits and its purchase of Deleón is Diageo’s latest step toward returning to a leading position in tequila in North America,” said Larry Schwartz, President, Diageo North America. “Expanding our relationship with Sean Combs into tequila was a natural choice given Sean’s ability to galvanize support for luxury brands, as we’ve seen with our work together on Cîroc.”
