Kurtzman & Orci Adapting Joe Hill's Comic Book Locke & Key

Kurtzman & Orci / Locke & Key

I'm not sure if anyone read the IDW comic Locke & Key, but good news for those who are fans. Back in February of 2008, we announced that Dimension Films had picked up the rights to turn Locke & Key into a feature film. The comic is written by Joe Hill, the son of author Stephen King, whose debut novel was "Heart-Shaped Box." An insider tells Latino Review that the project sat dormant at Dimension, so Hill got a bit upset and decided to move the rights elsewhere. So where is it now? They say that writers/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have set it up at Spielberg's DreamWorks, where they'll also produce.

The story in Locke & Key (pick it up on Amazon) revolves around a group of three children who become the caretakers of Keyhouse, a mansion in New England that is full of secrets and magic. The kids discover doors that take them to different places, give them powers and even alter gender and skin color. But behind one door is a dangerously violent creature. It sounds like a creepy, fun concept that should work great on the big screen. And although a lot of people don't like Kurtzman and Orci, I'm still a supporter of theirs, and I'm glad to see them behind this. It can only mean good things knowing this is now a DreamWorks production.

Read the first book, still waiting on the second (Head Games), and thought it was awesome. Should make for a pretty cool movie!

I feel sorry for any fans of this comic, because your favorite comic is going to get "the full treatment" from the two worst writers in Hollywood.
