Back in June we found out that Universal was looking to bring the popular comic Locke & Key to the big screen with writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci attached to produce this mammoth tale, and today Kurtzman lent some insight to fans as to what to expect.
“We have locked down on a writer who really came up with a brilliant way to take the best of the first couple graphic novels and play out a complete first movie story with a lot of promise of future movies, which is really our goal… I believe in it so much, and I believe in Joe Hill. All I want is to make that movie,” says Kurtzman.
Kurtzman wouldn’t elaborate on the writer’s identity, but he did say in terms of officially signing him or her, “We’re very close, though. Hopefully, it will be out soon. We really loved it, too. But it will live on as a movie now, and hopefully many.”
Written by Joe Hill and featuring astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez, 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…
Look for more soon!
