Fans of the comic book Locke & Key will want to pay attention. If you recall, the property – by writer Joe Hill and illustrator Gabriel Rodriguez – was translated for the screen as a television pilot. Mark Romanek directed and Fox ultimately passed on the pilot, deciding not to take it to series in spite of the warm reaction it received at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Last week, Latino Review reported that Universal and IDW, the publisher of Locke & Key, are going to develop a feature film trilogy.
The producers of the pilot, Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman, will reprise their duties, shepherding this big endeavor and writing the scripts.
On Twitter today, Joe Hill decline to comment on the trilogy, however, when Orci was asked about this rumor, he merely responded “True.” We’ll have to see where this all leads.
Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them…and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all.
