It has been quite a while since we heard any news about the adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s comic series “Locke & Key.” But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Albert Torres has been announced as the screenwriter for the production.
The comic series, published from 2008 to 2013 over six volumes, tells the story of the Locke family who travel to a place called Keyhouse, a New England mansion with fantastic keys that open up doors that give them incredible abilities. Though the building is also home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all.
Hollywood BFF’s Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are heading the big screen adaptation. Torres is most known for writing the 2008 film Henry Poole is Here. He also scripted a draft for a live action Ben 10 feature film.
There is no word yet on when the project will begin production. The studio has not announced what actors they are eyeing to star in the lead roles at the moment.
