ABC's Gothica Pilot Finds Its Van Helsing

ABC's Gothica Pilot Finds Its Van Helsing - Janet MontgomeryWord came last week that ABC's pilot for "Gothica" was still hunting for someone to play the lead, Grace Van Helsing, but now the role has been filled by a rather familiar face. Read on for the details.

Per Deadline, Janet Montgomery ("Made in Jersey," "Entourage," Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead, The Hills Run Red) will play Van Helsing, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper. Dorian Gray (Chris Egan) provides her with the $20 million she needs to retain control of the paper, and she was romantically involved with Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) years ago.

In this incarnation of the story 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. Gray is a wealthy playboy.

"Gothica" was penned by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer's Apprentice) and will be co-produced by The Mark Gordon Company.

More on this one soon!
