IDW Entertainment To Bring Locke & Key To Television Creator Joe Hill To Write The Pilot
IDW Entertainment (“IDWE”) announced today that the award-winning, fan-favorite property Locke & Key is being developed as a television series. Author/creator Joe Hill will be writing the pilot and serving as an executive producer.
Locke & Key has garnered both awards and acclaim during its five-year run. Following the titular Locke family as they encounter magic beyond belief and evils beyond redemption, Locke & Key quickly won over readers and has since become a staple in introducing new readers to the medium. With the series adapted in dozens of languages across the globe, and more than a million copies sold worldwide, Locke & Key is an obvious choice to make the transition to the screen.
New York Times bestselling author, Joe Hill, has continually captivated readers through his gripping novels and award-winning comic series. Bursting onto the scene with his debut collection of short stories 20th Century Ghosts, Hill has continued to thrill audiences with the novels, Heart-Shaped Box, N0S4A2, and Horns, adapted into a feature-length film in 2013, starring Daniel Radcliffe. His forthcoming novel The Fireman debuts later this month. In addition to Locke & Key, his comic series The Cape, Thumbprint, Wraith, and the upcoming series Tales From The Darkside, have all been published by IDW.
“I love this story,” said Hill. “The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.”
Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead) will serve as executive producers along with Joe.
“Having Joe at the helm of the pilot ensures that the series will hold true to the brand that fans around the world have come to love. Locke & Key is a true global franchise”, said David Ozer, President of IDW Entertainment.
IDW Entertainment is developing Locke & Key as a straight to series and will maintain worldwide rights to the project.
The comic was previously going to be picked up as a television series, with Fox, SyFy and MTV all said to be interested.
A pilot was even shot, with writers Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman on as producers, the two of course known for writing Transformers and the two recent Star Trek films as well as the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequel.
However, the TV series was passed on, and now news comes that there is still hope for Locke & Key as Bob Orci confirms on his Twitter account that plans for a trilogy are in the making.
Regarding whether or not any of the original cast from the television pilot, which was previously aired back at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, will be back is unknown, as Mirando Otto, Nick Stahl and Jesse McCartney were all a part of.
They ultimately passed on it, as did SYFY.
