It director Andy Muschietti replaces Scott Derrickson on Locke and Key pilot

It was only a few weeks ago that we shared with you guys the news that SINISTER director Scott Derrickson was going to taking the helm of the recently announced Hulu series LOCK & KEY, based on the comic series by Joe Hill.

Well, today it looks like there has been a changing of the guard, as Derrickson has exited the pilot and made room for STEPHEN KING'S IT Andy Muschietti to step in and handle things from here on out.

Derrickson supposedly wanted to continue with the pilot but was forced to step out as scheduling conflicts with his work directing the pilot on TNT's SNOWPEIRCER got more and more in the way.

Who do you think could create a better pilot episode of Joe Hill's Locke & Keye, Muschietti or Derrickson? Let us know what you think of this director switch-up on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

LOCKE & KEY rundown:

After the gruesome murder of their father, three siblings move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.

Creator, Joe Hill is writing the script for the pilot and BATES MOTEL showrunner Carlton Cuse will be leading his running of shows talent to this series as well now that MOTEL has ended.
