Aussie actress Miranda Otto (“Lord of the Rings”, TVs “Cashmere Mafia”) will headline “Locke & Key”, a TV adaption of the Joe Hill written comic. The series will be produced by tentpole staples Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman (“Transformers”, “Star Trek”).
Deadline says the show fixes on “Nina Locke (Otto) and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, who survive an unspeakable horror and attempt to rebuild their lives at Keyhouse, their family home in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. It is a mysterious New England mansion, with fantastic and transformative keys hidden inside its walls that are also being sought by a hate-filled and relentless creature with ties to the Locke family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish his sinister goals.”
Josh Friedman wrote the pilot, with Mark Romanek (“The Wolfman”) in negotiations to direct.
