Hulu Orders Pilot For Locke & Key With Joe Hill Writing, Carlton Cuse Showrunning, Scott Derrickson Directing


Locke & Key is finally making its way to televisions, provided they are Hulu-equipped. The streaming service has ordered a pilot for the TV adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, according to a report from Deadline. Hill himself will write the pilot, while LOST alum Carlton Cuse will serve as showrunner (so don't expect any payoff in the finale – yes we're still butthurt about LOST). Scott Derrickson will direct, as Derrickson himself proudly told Twitter:

This isn't the first time an attempt was made at bringing Locke & Key to television, but it's a much different landscape today than it was back in 2011. Locke & Key has also been in development as a movie trilogy at Universal, and it's unknown how this new deal could affect that, if at all. We'll keep you updated.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
