The lovely Eva Green takes center stage in a new teaser trailer for Showtime’s upcoming “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman”-esque period TV show “Penny Dreadful”. I guess this answers the question of whether Showtime will get their version on the air before Fox actually gets their “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” adaptation.
From the looks of this teaser, does Eva Green turn into a wolf? Or is she being hunted by wolves? I dunno, but should be plenty interesting.
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, the aforementioned Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Billie Piper and Danny Sapani.
It hits Showtime in Spring 2014.
