Kurtzman and Orci Adapting ‘Locke & Key’

Much like his father before him, Joe Hill (son of Stephen King) is making the transition from printed page to big screen. Our friends at Latino Review are reporting that Hill’s critically acclaimed series Locke & Key will be adapted by the writing/producing dynamic duo, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci through their deal with DreamWorks.

The story centers around Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. Keyhouse is also 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 illustrated magnificently by Gabriel Rodriguez and published by IDW.

Locke & Key was nominated for Best Limited Series and Joe Hill was nominated for Best Writer at the 2009 Eisner Awards. Check out the trailer for the comic book IDW Publishing put out:

If you’re not familiar with the series, now is the time to get caught up, the series has been fantastic. Welcome to Lovecraft, the first book in the series, is available on trade paperback for around $15; $16.50 if you prefer hardcover).



  1. I’d never heard of this before, but it sounds like a very cool premise. Definitely be keeping my eye out for more news on this film!

  2. I haven’t started Locke & Key yet (hopefully soon) but I’ve heard great things. And that’s why I’m scared that the screenplay is in the hands of the writers of Transformers. Transformers 2 was one of the worst written movies I’ve seen in a while.
