THR reports that Torres, who previously wrote the underrated Luke Wilson drama Henry Poole Is Here, is the one chosen to adapt the comic.
“Locke & Key tells of three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine. They soon discover the house has magical keys that give the bearers a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know (but they soon will) that a devious demon also wants the keys.”
The Locke and Key movie is being produced by Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci, Bobby Cohen and Ted Adams, and this represents the first real movement we’ve seen on it for a while.
Of course, Locke And Key did manage to get to a filmed pilot at Fox before the plug was pulled so we’re going to continue to cautiously optimistic.
