Back in April Hulu announced that they had an adaption of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s IDW comic, Lock & Key, in the works. Originally, Scott Derrickson (Sinister) was attached to direct the pilot for the one-hour series. Now, Deadline is reporting Derrickson has stepped away due to a scheduling conflict with his other series, Snowpiercer.
Andy Muschietti will be taking Derrickson’s seat in the directors chair. Muschietti must really be a fan of the King family, after adapting Stephen King’s IT and now adapting King’s son’s (Joe Hill) comic.
The series centers around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to obtain them.
Lock & Key is from Hill, Carlton Cuse (The Strain) and IDW Entertainment. Cuse serves as showrunner and shares executive producer duties and developed the series with Hill who wrote the script.
