Locke and Key Coming to Tv Via Hulu

Way back on June 21, 2013, we reported that Locke and Key was optioned for a movie. From that point on we didn’t hear a thing. Now, Hollywood Reporter has stated that Locke and Key will be coming to tv via the streaming service Hulu.

Locke and Key #1 has been very hot since the announcement of the movie. Now, the book may go back to it’s previous highs.

From Hollywood Reporter:

Hulu is giving IDW comic book favorite Locke and Key a stab.

The streaming service has handed out a pilot order to the popular Joe Hill property with Carlton Cuse set to serve as showrunner, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Locke and Key is a horror/ fantasy series that 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. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.

Hill will pen the script for the hourlong pilot. Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel, The Strain, Jack Ryan) will exec produce alongside Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) and Lindsey Springer. Cuse will serve as showrunner, while Derrickson will direct the IDW Comics drama.
