Everyone got a taste of the great things that Scott Derrickson can do when he helmed the well-received Doctor Strange. The guy basically introduced the psychedelic world into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and everyone was all the better for it after seeing it.
Now, Derrickson is looking to bring to life on TV screens the series adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's Locke & Key. According to EW, the Derrickson is already tagged to direct the pilot episode.
He won't be alone, however, as Carlton Cuse, best known for his work in Lost and Bates Motel on TV, will be the producer and showrunner.
This isn't the first time that Locke & Key was supposed to hit television. Back in 2010, it was already up for a pilot episodes from director Mark Romanek. Sadly, Fox didn't buy the series, so it took years before this project could become a reality.
Locke & Key is a fantasy and horror graphic novel that focuses on three siblings who had apparently inherited a house that had magical keys to magical powers. However, there's also a demon in their midst who wants to get those keys, so it's going to be quite a rollercoaster to stop it.
Currently, there's no release date yet tagged to the project, but I have to say, it's an interested addition to my must-watch list.
