The Tudors co-star Sarah Bolger has been cast as Kinsey in Locke & Key, Fox’s adaptation of the horror comic by Joe Hill, Deadline reports.
Produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Fringe) through their first-look deal with DreamWorks TV, the project is on the fast track at the network, where it received a direct-to-series order in September. Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) is directing the pilot from a script by Josh Friedman ( The Black Dahlia, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles).
Debuting in 2008 from IDW Publishing, Locke & Key is a series of miniseries revolving around a family that moves to a spooky mansion in Lovecraft, Massachusetts, whose many doors can transport its residents to other worlds or bestow them with supernatural abilities. Written by Hill, author of Heart Shaped Box and son of Stephen King, and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, the series won the 2009 British Fantasy Award for best comic or graphic novel.
Bolger, whose character Kinsey Locke is the middle child, joins Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings), who plays mother Nina. Brothers Tyler and Bode haven’t been cast.
