Henry Poole is Here scribe to write Locke & Key adaptation for Universal
It's not clear if Universal and FOX have made a deal yet involving the rights to Locke & Key, but the project does now have a screenwriter. THR is reporting Albert Torres has been hired to write the Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci produced adaption of Joe Hill's comic book series.
Comic book synopsis from Amazon:
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!
Locke & Key is an absolutely brilliant and terrifying comic, and I have very high hopes for the adaptation. I still think it would work better as a television series, but as long as the movie is just as good as the comics, I'll be one very happy Locke & Key fan. Which director would you like to see behind the camera for the big screen version of Joe Hill's comic book series?
