WATCH: Penny Deadful gets a new teaser and a premiere date

January 17th, 2014 by Shane Michael Comments

The new supernatural series, Penny Dreadful has finally got an air date and a menacing trailer to boot. Created by John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) who will write and produce alongside Oscar winning director Sam Mendes(American beauty). The first few episodes of the planned 8 episode first season are to be directed by J.A. Bayona who in the past has directed the fan-favourite horror film, The Orphanage.
Described as a frightening psychosexual thriller, the series will feature some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters such as Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light in which they have become embroiled in Victorian London.
The series as you can see from the trailer is set to air May 11th 2014 and stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down, Sin City), Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights, License 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), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) and Danny Sapani (The Bill) will also star.
