Sean Bean (Silent Hill, Silent Hill: Revelation, The Lord of the Rings) is a favorite actor of mine and he will be starring in ITV‘s The Frankenstein Chronicles mini-series. The new UK TV series will be a six-part mini-series for ITV Encore, the UK subscription channel. Sean Bean will play Inspector John Marlott with Rainmark Films to produce. Filming is expected to start this January 2015.
Set in 1827 London, the drama begins when Home Secretary Sir Robert Peel recruits Marlott after a successful operation by Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers. As Marlott stands on the water’s edge contemplating the arrests, he makes a shocking discovery: A corpse washed up on the shore is not what it seems at first glance. Instead, it’s a crude assembly of body parts arranged in a grotesque parody of a human form. The mutilated child-like body leaves an indelible impression on Marlott who is tasked by Peel with tracking the perpetrator of this heinous crime. As he investigates, Marlott discovers that what he’s dealing with is more horrific than he could possibly have imagined.
