Some new casting info has come in for ABC’s “Gothica” pilot. Aussie Chris Egan will play Dorian Gray, and Brit Tom Ellis will portray Victor Frankenstein in the project, set in the present day, which weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray.
In this incarnation of the story Victor Frankenstein runs a hospital that also does biotech research and believes that he may have a way to bring his recently deceased daughter back to life. Victor (Ellis) was once romantically involved with the show’s lead character, Grace Van Helsing. Dorian Gray (Egan) is a wealthy playboy that invests $20 million in Grace’s newspaper.
“Gothica” was penned by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) and will be co-produced by The Mark Gordon Company.
