Locke & Key Being Planned As Trilogy

28 July 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic-Con is a wonderful place, one where exciting scoops can emerge from unexpected places. Attendees at the panel for Alexandre Aja’s upcoming Horns, a Daniel Radcliffe-led horror comedy about a young man trying to solve his girlfriend’s murder (which looks amazing by the way), were treated to plenty of information about that project, but one well-placed question led to an update about an entirely different but also promising project – Universal’s comic adaptation Locke & Key.

Joe Hill, the comic-book artist whose novel served as the inspiration for Horns, delivered the news, confirming that the long-in-development project will in fact be a trilogy and is currently taking shape at Universal Pictures. Albert Torres, the screenwriter of Henry Poole is Here, the upcoming Akira remake and an announced live-action version of Ben 10, has been tapped to adapt the L0cke & Key comic-book series, which Hill co-wrote with Gabriel Rodriguez. »

Universal’s Locke & Key Adaptation Finds A Screenwriter

11 July 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal is wasting no time in getting their adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key off the ground. The studio acquired the rights to Idw Publishing’s supernatural graphic novel series last month and this week, they’ve brought on Henry Poole is Here scribe Albert Torres to pen the screenplay.

Torres’ resume is a bit lacking at the moment, though he’s reportedly been busy “tackling heavy-hitting tentpoles.” He worked on a draft of Warner Brothers’ own long-gestating graphic novel adaptation, Akira, as well as scripts for Silver Pictures’ Ben 10 and Paramount’s adaptation of the Dark Horse comic, Hyde. 

The story of Locke & Key focuses on teenagers who go to live with their mother in her Massachusetts home after the murder of their father. Once there, the three kids find that the sprawling mansion, called Keyhouse, holds many secrets behind its closed doors, which »

Albert Torres To Pen New "Locke & Key" Film

10 July 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Albert Torres ("Henry Poole is Here") has been selected to pen the latest attempt to adapt Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's award-winning supernatural comic book series "Locke & Key" at Universal Pictures.

Set in a small Massachusetts village, the story follows a mother and her three children who move into their family estate after her husband is murdered. The vast estate has many areas only accessible by special keys, while a malevolent force within the house lures the husband's killer to the town to finish off the rest of the family.

Originally "Transformers" and "Star Trek" scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman had planned to adapt the property into a single film. That collapsed, leading to a TV series adaptation. A Mark Romanek-directed pilot was produced but didn't get picked up to series.

Then in late 2012 came word that Orci and Kurtzman were planning to turn the property into a film trilogy at Universal. »

Universal Hires Writer for Locke & Key Movie

10 July 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Locke & Key tried to find life on the small screen, but the adaptation of the acclaimed comic book series never made it past the pilot stage.  Fortunately for fans, Universal picked up the rights to the comics not too long ago and now they're getting serious about making the film as they've hired a writer to pen the script.  

Locke & Key are among some of my favorite comics.  They don't feature any superheroes, but it's a powerful story about dealing with loss, the supernatural, and figuring out what it means to grow up.  If you haven't read it, the series from Joe Hill has wrapped up and all six graphic novels are available for purchase. I highly recommend them.

As such, I'm pretty excited to hear that Universal (thanks to THR for the scoop) have hired a writer for their big screen adaptation of the series:

A conversation with Mark Pellington (part two):

23 June 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Mark Pellington needs little introduction to film fans. Getting his start working for MTV in its heyday producing interstitial promos led to music videos for such heavyweights as Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails and Moby. Beginning his feature film career with the period drama Going All The Way led to atmospheric, frightening thrillers like Arlington Road and The Mothman Prophecies; and most recently the uplifting, earnest Henry Poole is Here and the palpably bleak I Melt With You. On top of that he’s created personal documentaries, commercials, TV pilots; and gone where his creative needs take him.

Mark graciously made time for us to have a candid conversation encompassing his recent film work; bouncing back from loss; his trust in intuition through the making of his abstract, creepy/beautiful musical film Lone, and ultimately the healing and cathartic rewards of the creative process.  Some of »

'Mixology': Andrew Santino is the 'devil on the shoulder'

26 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

On Wednesday, Feb. 26, ABC premieres "Mixology," a comedy set in one night in one bar -- high-end Manhattan watering hole Mix -- as 10 single people try to find love, or at least lust.

Blake Lee stars as Tom, a man recently dumped by his fiancee, whose friends -- confident Cal (Craig Frank) and fast-talking Bruce (Andrew Santino) -- are tossing him into the singles pool after a decade off the market. First, he meets beautiful but brutal attorney Maya (Ginger Gonzaga), which leaves him in tears. It gets worse after that.

"Cal is the more levelheaded, clear-thinking man," Santino tells Zap2it, "and Tom is very impulsive and nervous and riddled with anxiety, and Bruce is the devil on his shoulder, if you will. I'm trying to get Tom to do something he's not used to. Instead of putting his feet in the water, I tell him to jump all »
