Steven Spielberg Boards Locke & Key Adaptation


Vulture has learned that Joe Hill’s (the son of Stephen King) comic Locke & Key will no longer be coming to theaters, but instead will be adapted for television by Steven Spielberg, Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and Josh Friedman.

Distributed by IDW Publishing, Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them… and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all.

Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) will write and produce. Kurtzman and Orci recently signed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV, so the studio will end up producing with Spielberg’s DreamWorks TV.
