Locke & Key co-creator Joe Hill is over-the-moon for Muschietti's pilot

Earlier this morning, I woke up to some very enthusiastic tweets from LOCKE & KEY co-creator Joe Hill. Apparently, upon viewing the Andy Muschietti-directed pilot episode of the upcoming TV series adaptation of Hill's critically-acclaimed comic series, the son of legendary author Stephen King felt the need to shout his praise from the top of Twitter mountain.

You can see the posts for yourself below:

Hill then added to his previous comment with a follow-up tweet:

Hill unveiled the IDW-published LOCKE & KEY comic alongside series co-creator and artist Gabriel Hernandez in February of 2008. The first volume, Welcome to Lovecraft, presented readers of the macabre with a cast of compelling characters whose lives had become touched by an unspeakable evil living on the property of their family home.

LOCKE & KEY centers around Tyler (Jack Mulhern), Kinsey (Megan Charpenter), and Bode Locke (Jackson Robert Scott), three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine only to find the house has magical keys that grant them a vast array of potentially dangerous powers and abilities. What the Locke family doesn't know, is that there's a devilish demon who lives in the shadow's of their home who desires the keys, and will stop at nothing to posses them.

For quite some time, DOCTOR STRANGE director Scott Derrickson was in-line to helm the LOCKE & KEY pilot. However, after discovering that the project would conflict with his plans to shoot the SNOWPIERCER pilot at TNT, Derrickson had to bow out. Now, Andy Muschietti, who directed the 2017 remake of Stephen King's IT, is shooting the pilot, with LOST's Carlton Cuse serving as showrunner on the long-gestating project.

This is really great news, my friends! It's been a hot minute since we've received any updates regarding LOCKE & KEY, and it sounds as if the show is really coming along, now. I for one simply cannot wait to see what Hill, Muschietti, and the rest of their team have put together, for when one of my favorite comic book series of all times makes its way to Hulu.
