To every lock, there is a key... Idw Entertainment is developing a Locke & Key TV show adaption. Locke & Key comics creator Joe Hill (Stephen King's look-alike son), aka Joseph Hillstrom King, will write the pilot and serve as showrunner. Hill will executive produce with Ted Adams and David Ozer from Idw Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion.
This is not the first time Locke & Key has landed in development. In 2010, Fox greenlit a Locke & Key TV series pilot from from DreamWorks TV and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The cast of that Locke & Key TV show pilot included Nick Stahl, Miranda Otto, and Sarah Bolger. The pilot screened in 2011 at New York Comic Con. Below, watch a trailer for the 2011 version of »
Idw Entertainment have announced that Joe Hill will write and executive produce a new TV series based on his acclaimed "Locke and Key" comics, this one likely to end up on a cable network.
The series, which ran from 2008-2013, follows three siblings who return to their family estate in Massachusetts after the gruesome death of their father.
Once there, they discover magical keys that grant special powers and open strange doors. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones interested in these mysterious artifacts, as a supernatural force is also after them.
Fox attempted a series adaptation in 2010 but the network opted not to pick it up. Mark Romanek ("Never Let Me Go") helmed the pilot while Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman ("Fringe," "Star Trek") produced and the likes of Miranda Otto, Jesse McCartney, Nick Stahl, Sarah Bolger and Mark Pellegrino starred.
Universal then tried to adapt it as a feature »

Most simply said, Locke & Key concerns a family that, in the wake of the patriarch’s murder, moves from California to Massachusetts. There, the mother and her three kids move into an estate called Key House, so as to be close to the deceased’s brother. Things then get very eerie as a set of unusual keys prove to unlock all sorts of unsettling discoveries within and round the manor, »
Idw Entertainment has announced that Locke & Key is finally heading to the screen, with Joe Hill set to write the pilot episode and executive produce a TV series based upon the acclaimed comic book series.
“I love this story,” said Hill as part of the announcement. “The seven years I spent working on Locke & Key was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn’t a day when I don’t think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can’t scare the pants off viewers everywhere.”
“Having Joe at the helm of the pilot ensures that the series will hold true to the brand that fans around the world have come to love. »

After being responsible for this year’s Bluray release of Zombie High, the gang at Scream Factory must have decided to put out a film with a similar plot, a better soundtrack and a much more entertaining ride, 1998’s Disturbing Behavior. While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that shows just how far actors like James Marsden and Katie Holmes have come, while it’s also somewhat of sad look at Nick Stahl, a very good actor who has since fallen on some very hard times.
X-Files regular David Nutter gives viewers the tale of Steve (James Marsden, X-men, The Notebook), a young man who transfers into a school that like most other schools, are sectioned off by varying types of stereotypes. The outcasts led by Holmes and Stahl doing their best Hot Topic regular performances, the stoners, and most interestingly, the »

Larsson has just received such a postcard, and she and Kanon must piece together the clues to catch the killer.
