Victor Frankenstein!! Dorian Gray!! Mina Harker!! The Trailer For Showtime’s EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN-Ish PENNY DREADFUL Series!!
Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” due May 11, comes from the mind of screenwriter John Logan, whose big-screen credits include “Gladiator,” the 2002 “Time Machine,” “Star Trek: Nemesis,” “The Last Samurai,” “The Aviator,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Rango” and “Skyfall.”
From the press release:
Currently in production in Ireland, the eight-episode series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill) and Eva Green (Casino Royale). Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Danny Sapani (The Bill) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) also star.
In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light – have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.
