Superhero Hype reports that Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall) and Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger) have been added to Showtime's drama Penny Dreadful. The series will begin filming this fall for a 2014 premiere. They join previously announced cast members Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green.
Carney will play Dorian Grey, the character from Oscar Wilde's The Portrait of Dorian Gray. Treadaway will play Dr. Victor Frankenstein, from Mary Shelley's novel of the same name. Kinnear plays a "mysterious character of haunting intensity".
The series was created, written and executive produced by John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator). There will be eight episodes total, with the first two directed by Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible).
