Janet Montgomery Cast As Grace Van Helsing In ABC Pilot GOTHICA

There's a sort of League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen type show in the works at ABC, but focusing only on classic literary horror characters. And putting a female spin of Dracula's nemesis, Made In Jersey's Montgomery will play the lead..



Deadline report that Made In Jersey/Human Target actress Janet Montgomery has been cast as Grace Van Helsing in ABC's Gothica, which will re-imagine some classic horror icons, giving us a present-day take on the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. So far so Alan Moore's League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen right? Well, modern day setting aside, yes. Apparently Montgomery's Van Helsing will be a "Pulitzer prize winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper". The show will also star Chris Egan as Dorian Gray, who provides her with the $20 million she needs to retain control of the paper, and To Ellis as Victor Frankenstein, to whom Van Helsing was engaged. No word yet on whether any other, more supernatural, characters will be popping up, but I'd say it's a safe bet.
