In a move that should surprise absolutely no one who has read the series, Universal Pictures has optioned the film rights to IDW Publishing’s Locke and Key. Created by writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez, the Eisner award-winning Locke and Key tells the story of the Locke family, attempting to recover from debilitating tragedy in their ancestral home, Keyhouse, which contains both wonders and a relentless enemy. There’s a little more in the way of a plot description in the link above, but that’s all you need to know and all you frankly should know before reading and/or potentially seeing it at some point in the future. Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtz (Star Trek Into Divisiveness, Transformers 2: The Transformening) and their partner Bobby Cohen will produce the film along with IDW’s publisher, Ted Adams. This is usually the place where I say something snarky, but honestly? I’m hoping something comes of this. Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
