Frances O'Connor To Play Nina Locke In Hulu's Locke & Key

Earlier this year we found out that Hulu had ordered a pilot episode for a potential series based on the Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez comic book series Locke & Key.

Now comes the first casting announcement for the series. It’s being reported that Frances O’Connor has signed onto the project. She’ll be taking on the role of Nina Locke.

Hulu Orders ‘Locke & Key’ Pilot; ‘Doctor Strange’s Scott Derrickson To Direct
The Movie God   |

Hulu has officially ordered a pilot episode for a potential new TV series adaptation of the Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez comic book series Locke & Key. We found out almost a year ago that a new adaptation was being developed, which followed a failed movie adaptation and another TV series attempt at FOX, which got as far as a pilot episode being produced before they decided not to pursue it any further.

This latest attempt to adapt the comic is looking promising so far. It received plenty of interest from multiple networks before Hulu landed it. And not only have they ordered a pilot episode, but LOST and The Strain showrunner Carlton Cuse is set for the same position should it go to series, and they’ve lined up Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson to direct the pilot.

IDW Entertainment has announced that a new TV series is being developed based on Locke & Key, the comic book series of the same name written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodríguez.

This isn’t the first time a Locke & Key adaptation has been developed, as fans of the comic are well aware. Both a movie and a TV series adaptations have been in the works in the past handful of years, with the TV series getting as far as a pilot episode actually being produced.

Locke & Key audiobook

Fans of IDW Publishing’s Locke & Key have had to suffer through a lot of starts and stops when it comes to adapting the comic series into another medium. There was the ill-fated Fox pilot that was never aired, a movie trilogy that appears to not be happening anymore, and the possibility of another TV show, but so far the only other medium Locke & Key has been translated into has been the card game by Cryptozoic Entertainment.

That all changes today, October 5, as Locke & Key has been released as an audiobook, and it’s free for a limited time!

Universal Pictures & ‘Star Trek’ Writers To Turn ‘Locke & Key’ Into Movie
Waerloga69   |  

Locke & Key Television Series

You read that right, my friends. Universal Pictures just snagged the options to the bestselling comic series Locke & Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez. In other words, they are looking to turn this awesome comic into a feature film! Now, I’ve loved the series since the beginning and I’ve got to say, this movie could easily shame a lot of the big comic films we have seen in the last few years.

Looking to produce this through Universal-based K/O Paper Products, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Bobby Cohen have teamed with IDW’s CEO Ted Allen who is also being listed as producer on this project. That’s a lot of pull to get the job done. I don’t want to get my hopes up, but I was pretty jazzed to hear this today. We all know how Fox kind of dropped the ball on giving us a version for television with Steven Spielberg, not to mention MTV and SyFy passing on it, too. Luckily, it was Kurtzman and Orci (of Star Trek, Fringe and Transformers fame) who have remained dedicated to getting this off the ground. Their vigilance seems to have paid off finally. And I have to say, I think I’d rather see a feature length film than something scaled down for television anyway. And if everything goes well, word has it they might be looking at a trilogy of films!

Comic Review: Locke & Key: Omega #5
Waerloga69   |  

Locke and Key: Omega #5Locke & Key: Omega #5
Written by Joe Hill
Art by Gabriel Rodriguez
Colors by Jay Fotos
Letters by Robbie Robbins
Covers by Gabriel Rodriguez, Shane Leonard
IDW Publishing
Release Date: June 5, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

There are comic books out there that I read strictly because the art is just so fantastic it must be seen to be believed. There are also those that I read because the story is so riveting or the writing is so phenomenal. Well, Locke & Key: Omega #5 is firmly housed in both those categories. I cannot stress enough how awesome this entire series has been. From the very first comic to this current issue, nothing has ever changed my initial opinion of “WOW!”

First and foremost is Joe Hill, author extraordinaire. Brilliant and twisted are the first two words that come to mind when I think of him. Not in an over-the-top horrific way, but in a subtle, never-saw-it-coming kind of way. His characters are all so richly developed and so very damaged in one sense or another. Tragedy is commonplace and almost to be expected with the Locke family (the main protagonists of this series), they’ve seen so much of it and it never seems to let up. And just as in real life, the characters grow stronger and closer throughout most of it…really instilling the reader with the feeling that this family intends to endure and conquer whatever they come up against.
