Steven Spielberg is teaming with Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (“Star Trek”, “Fringe”, “Cowboys & Aliens”) and Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) to adapt Joe Hill’s graphic novel/comic series Locke & Key into a TV series:
First released in 2008, Locke & Key revolves around three kids who end up watching over a secret, spooky New England mansion filled with mystical doors that transport them to different worlds and give them special powers (like turning into a ghost). Dimension had purchased the TV and film rights to the IDW Publishing series back in 2008, not long after the first installment came out (several installments have followed, including one released earlier this month).
When initially announced, the Kurtzman/Orci project was originally set to be a feature film, but that’s changed now with the addition of Friedman as a writer and producer. Another interesting note, Joe Jill is actually Stephen King’s son. Fox is a potential airing network for the series.
