From the latest Showtime teaser of Penny Dreadful, all I can say is wow, I like it. The show looks to mix a lot of scary horror icons from the 1800-1900"s and the cinematography is nothing less than awesome. This is a teaser that is packed with so much and you know this is only a taste of a great upcoming horror TV series. Look for Showtime"s Penny Dreadful premiering this upcoming Sunday, May 11, 2014. The new horror series stars Josh Hartnett (30 Days of Night, The Black Dahlia), Eva Green (Casino Royale, Dark Shadows, Camelot) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill) and many more hauntingly great stars listed below.
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 stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill).
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.
