We’ve waiting a long time for this… IDW’s comic series Locke And Key, from Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, is finally looking like it’s heading for our TV screens!
The series almost made it in 2011 when FOX filmed Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci’s pilot episode (watch the trailer for that one at the bottom of the page), however it never made it to series, however hopefully the new series will be more successful.
Word on the street is that Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is set to direct the one-hour pilot episode which is being produced by Lost, Bate’s Motel and The Strains Carlton Cuse along with creators Hill, Rodriguez and IDW Publishing.
Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
It’s a smart move getting Derrickson involved in the project as he is now still basking in the glow of Doctor Strange and having directed the likes of Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, he’s not stranger to the scary stuff; but it’s the attachment of Cuse that really has us most excited here at FTN. Lost is one of our all-time favourite shows here at FTN, and we’re big fans of Bates Motel and The Strain, so we can’t wait to see how this progresses.
We’ll keep you posted on Hulu’s Locke & Key as and well it develops.
Let us know if you’re as excited as we are…
