It's being written...
In an interview with Collider, executive producer Alex Kurtzman (Sleepy Hollow, which premieres September 16) gave an update on the film of Locke & Key. The film is an adaptation of the graphic novels by Joe Hill. A pilot starring Miranda Otto, Mark Pellegrino, Jesse McCartney and Sarah Bolger was made for the 2011 TV season but was never picked up.
Kurtzman said: "We're going to make a movie! We're really serious. Absolutely! We're really, really serious. In fact, we have locked down on a writer who really came up with a brilliant way to take the best of the first couple graphic novels and play out a complete first movie story with a lot of promise of future movies, which is really our goal. But, I am as in love with it as you are. I believe in it so much, and I believe in Joe Hill. All I want is to make that movie. "
However, he wouldn't reveal who the writer was. He added: "I can't tell you yet. We're very close, though. Hopefully, it will be out soon. We really loved it, too. But, it will live on as a movie now, and hopefully many."
