Locke & Key

Recommended Posts

Locke & Key trilogy coming to the big screen.



Last week fans of Joe Hill's "Locke & Key" comic book series at IDW Publishing were given hope that the series might get another shot at a live-action adaptation when rumors swirled about Universal optioning the series with an eye toward developing it as a trilogy. Those hopes have been now confirmed, with io9 noting that writer/producer Roberto Orci corroborating the rumor via his twitter account.

"Locke & Key" was developed as a television pilot for FOX in 2011 but the network decided it ultimately did not fit on their schedule. Both SyFy and MTV flirted with reviving the project, developed by "The Terminator Chronicles'" Josh Friedman, but nothing ever came of it and the project seemed to be completely dead.

Universal plans to develop a three-feature adaptation of the series by Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez, to be written by "Star Trek" and "Transformers" screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who also served as producers on the pilot. There is no word on whether any of the cast from the pilot -- which included Mirando Otto, Nick Stahl and Jesse McCartney -- will return for the trilogy.


I've seen the trailer for the TV pilot, but not the whole thing. I think a trilogy could work pretty well.

Nope. It had a couple of starts and stops so far. They filmed a pilot YEARS ago for Fox - it didn't happen. AMAZON made a new pilot just this last year...nope.


Now that pilot is being shopped around and Netflix is just looking at the property trying to decide if it's worth it.



...they need to stop fucking playing with my heart over this. I want this show to happen. It's one of my favorite comics of all time and it deserves so much better than this. 


(also ❤️ yay listening to mah show)
