I apparently missed a pretty damn important piece of news during the initial announcement that the great Mark Romanek would be directing the pilot episode of Fox’s Locke & Key TV series. It has been revealed that Miranda Otto (War of the Worlds, Lord of the Rings) will be starring as Nina Locke, the drunk mother of Tyler, Kinsey, and Bode, who all survive an unspeakable horror and attempt to rebuild their lives at Keyhouse, their family home in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. It is a mysterious New England mansion, with fantastic and transformative keys hidden inside its walls that are also being sought by a hate-filled and relentless creature with ties to the Locke family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish his sinister goals. Josh Friedman penned the pilot. Casting is currently underway.
