Director Andy Muschietti continues to cast close to home, as it was announced on Tuesday that the It helmer has chosen Megan Charpentier will be joining the cast of Locke & Key, a one-hour horror/fantasy drama adaptation of the IDW comic book series from writer Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez for Hulu.
Charpentier has been tapped for the role of Kinsey Locke, the daughter of Rendell and Nina Locke (Frances O'Connor) and sister to Tyler and Bode (Jackson Robert Scott). A heart-wrenching and horrific take on the "haunted house" genre, here's an overview of the series:
"Following their father's gruesome murder in a violent home invasion, the Locke children return to his childhood home of Keyhouse in secluded Lovecraft, Massachusetts. Their mother, Nina, is too trapped in her grief—and a wine bottle—to notice that all in Keyhouse is not what it seems: too many locked doors, too many unanswered questions. Older kids Tyler and Kinsey aren't much better. But not youngest son Bode, who quickly finds a new friend living in an empty well and a new toy, a key, that offers hours of spirited entertainment. But again, all at Keyhouse is not what it seems, and not all doors are meant to be opened. Soon, horrors old and new, real and imagined, will come ravening after the Lockes and the secrets their family holds."
Hill and Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) are shepherding the pilot with IDW Entertainment. Cuse is serving as showrunner and executive-producing the pilot with Hill, Andy Muschietti's sister Barbara Muschietti, Lindsey Springer, Ted Adams and David Ozer of IDW Entertainment; and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion. Muschietti is directing the pilot from Hill's script.
