Recently we let you guys know that Hulu dumped Andy Muschietti’s TV series adaption of Joe Hill’s hit graphic novel series, “Locke & Key“. But there’s still hope it may be picked up by another service such as Netflix.
All this seems to heavily suggest that Hulu was obviously unimpressed with Muschietti’s pilot episode, but what did writer/creator Joe Hill think?
Well, Hill took to Twitter to let us all know saying, “The Locke & Key pilot is so fucking awesome… and so much fun. I can’t believe I’m anywhere near a show this good. Andy Muschietti got all of it. I’m forbidden to say more but am glad I can say that much. Have been bursting to blab about it.”
He then added: “I think I can also say that Andy and Barbara Muschietti are the best; so lucky to get to work with them. Brilliant big-hearted and tireless artists.”
The pilot is directed by Andy Muschietti (IT) and stars Frances O’Connor, Danny Glover, Jack Mulhern, Jackson Robert Scott, Megan Charpentier, Owen Teague, and Nate Corddry. Carlton Cuse (“Bates Motel”) acts as showrunner. “Locke and Key” will (hopefully) air somewhere in 2018.
