Hulu Calls Scott Derrickson for Locke and Key!

Published

on

Rejoice, Locke & Key fans! The news you’ve been wanting forever has now come. There’s been talk about an adaptation of the much beloved Joe Hill comic for a few years now, but streaming service Hulu is getting set to make it a reality.

The news comes via Deadline, who report that Hulu has given a pilot order to “Locke & Key,” a one-hour horror/fantasy drama adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill (The Fireman) and artist Gabriel Rodriguez (Little Nemo). The project comes from Hill, Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel,” “The Strain”), and IDW Entertainment with Doctor Strange helmer Scott Derrickson set to direct.

Cuse developed “Locke & Key” with Hill, who wrote the script on spec. The finished script was sent to one director, Derrickson, who came on board right away and, if the pilot goes to series, is expected to stay with the show for the first season and direct multiple episodes before segueing to the Doctor Strange sequel.

The script, with Derrickson attached, was taken out to the marketplace, garnering strong interest from multiple networks before landing at Hulu in a very competitive situation.

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.

Cuse will serve as showrunner. He is executive producing with Hill; Derrickson; Lindsey Springer of Carlton Cuse Prods.; Ted Adams, CEO of IDW Media Holdings; and David Ozer, President of IDW Entertainment.

More on this as it comes.

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.
