If current reports are true, Stephen Spielberg may be opening the door to bring IDW’s “Locke & Key” series to the small screen very soon.
The comic series by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez has been a hot property at IDW nearly since its first issue was published in 2007, and now with three full mini series under its belt, “Locke & Key” may be headed to television as NY Magazine’s Vulture blog reports. According to them, talks are underway for Spielberg to executive produce the new TV drama via his Dreamworks TV brand with “Transformers” and “Fringe” writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to write along with Josh Friedman (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”).
“Locke & Key,” which follows the story of three children who care for a spooky New England mansion whose series of doors takes them to other worlds or gives them mysterious powers, was previously optioned by Dimension Films who lost the rights to Dreamworks in February of this year. The comic’s fourth mini series (the first of its “second act”) titled “Keys To The Kingdom” recently hit comic shops.
