If you haven’t been reading Joe Hill’s (the son of Stephen King) wildly entertaining comic Locke & Key then you are missing out on one hell of a trippy and engaging experience. One so cool it has even caught the eye of Steven Spielberg and company.
According to New York Magazine’s The Vulture Steven Spielberg, via DreamWorks TV, is teaming with mega-hyphenates Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Transformers, “Fringe”) and writer/exec producer Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) to turn Joe Hill’s comic series, which was originally announced as a film project over at Dimension, into a major TV franchise. Hell YES!
For those not playing along, Locke & Key revolves around three kids who end up watching over a secret, spooky New England mansion filled with mystical doors that transport them to different worlds and give them special powers (like turning into a ghost).
Friedman will write the pilot. Look for more soon!
