DR. STRANGE Director Summoning LOCKE & KEY Adaptation

Why none other than Hulu, Joe Hill, Carlton Cuse (BATES MOTEL, THE STRAIN), and comic book publisher IDW Entertainment, that's who!

Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in ME only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. What the Locke family doesn't know, is that there's a devilish demon who lives in the shadow's of their home who desires the keys, and will stop at nothing to posses them. It's back at the pilot stage with hope it might actually come to life as a series, as Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and Lost/Colony's Carlton Cuse are aboard to make it for U.S. streaming service Hulu. In addition to executive producing, Cuse, who produces "Bates Motel", serves as showrunner. While the pilot, starring Sarah Bolger, Miranda Otto and Nick Stahl, did not go to series, the title has remained a cult favorite, with Hill and IDW Entertainment previous year announcing that they were taking a new stab at it for television.

Ted Adams and David Ozer from IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion (The Walking Dead) will serve as executive producers along with Joe.

IDW packaged the project with the goal of securing a straight-to-series order for the property.
