“Penny Dreadful” Teaser Featuring Eva Green

Eva Green appears in this teaser for the upcoming psychosexual thriller, Penny Dreadful, created by screenwriter John Logan (Hugo, Skyfall).

The new Showtime series will focus on Gothic literary characters including Dr. Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. Along with Eva Green, the cast includes Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, and Billie Piper.

Piper will play an Irish immigrant looking to escape her dark past, with Harnett playing Ethan Chandler, “a man of action and daring who isn’t afraid of violence. He’s charming and brash, but there are demons behind his eyes. He’s more complicated than he likes to admit.” Green’s character, Vanessa, is described as “enigmatic with haunted eyes and utterly composed. She will prove herself a force to be reckoned with and the heroine of the series.”
