Eva Green prays away the demons in this clip from the Showtime series Penny Dreadful
I'm actually glad I forgot about the upcoming Showtime series, PENNY DREADFUL. When I saw that there was a new teaser, I immediately went to the official Facebook page for the show and hit "like" so I wouldn't make such a mistake again.
What's cool about this series aside from everything is that Sam Mendes is the executive producer, Juan Antonio Bayona (THE ORPHANAGE) will direct, and John Logan (SKYFALL, THE AVIATOR) wrote the first two episodes. Here's a quick synopsis:
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 first teaser is centered on Eva Green's character. Who is she playing? I can't tell you. The clip is titled "We All Have Our Demons". The actress is praying on her knees in a dark room when something creepy seems to take her over but it's not what you think. The tease is subtle and makes me even more interested in the series.
PENNY DREADFUL will debut on Showtime in 2014.
