It was previously announced that Muschietti had enlisted IT kids Jackson Robert Scott (Georgie Denbrough), and Megan Charpentier (Gretta) to be in the show, and now he&#39;s turning to yet another young thespian from his hit film to join his latest venture.</p> <p>Owen Teague, who played doomed bully Patrick Hockstetter (&quot;I hear ya, tits!&quot;) in the IT adaptation, will be playing an even more unsavory sort in LOCKE &amp; KEY. This time he&#39;ll be tackling the role of Sam Lesser, "a violent and deeply troubled adolescent who kills his father and then goes to the Locke house and shoots the Locke kids&rsquo; father to death, in addition to battering their mother."</p> <p>Sounds like a real charmer!</p> <p>LOCKE &amp; KEY follows a trio of siblings who</p> <blockquote>move to their ancestral home in Maine with their mother Nina 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 attain them.</blockquote> <p>In addition to Teague, Charpentier and Scott, LOCKE &amp; KEY stars Frances O&#39;Connor, Danny Glover, Jack Mulhern and Nate Corddry. It will air on Hulu in 2018 with Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel) acting as showrunner.</p> <center><img alt="" src="/images_arrownews/locke-key-cover.jpg" title="" /></center>
Extra Tidbit: Teague clearly likes the King family. In addition to IT and Locke & Key, he was also in the film adaptation of King's CELL.
