Universal Picks Up 'Locke & Key' Comic For Film Adaptation

Reported by Outsiders - 2013.06.20

Universal is trying to go to the next step with adapting the Locke & Key comic to a film adaptation. For several years, Dimension had the screen rights and the property became a TV series, with a pilot, produced by DreamWorks TV and K/O Paper Products, being shot for Fox TV, which ultimately passed on it. In 2010, the screen rights lapsed and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci took over the rights. They will be producing with Bobby Cohen for their Universal-based K/O Paper Products banner. Ted Adams, the CEO and publisher of IDW Publishing, the company behind the comic, also will produce.

Locke & Key tells of three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts. They soon discover the house has magical keys that give the bearers a vast array of powers and abilities. However, a devious creature is also after the keys, forcing the family to make a stand against evil. The stories expanded to tell a bi-generational coming-of-age tale that encompasses heroism and tragedy and thrills and chills. The acclaimed supernatural comic book series is done Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
