One of the biggest disappointments of the year was when Fox passed up turning Locke & Key into a series. The pilot presentation was directed by none other than Mark Romanek and featured Miranda Otto, Sarah Bolger, Nick Stahl, Jesse McCartney, Skylar Gaertner and Ksenia Solo in a live-action adaptation of Joe Hills’ fantastic comic series.
Series writer, Josh Friedman, linked up the official trailer that recently leaked online. “This leaked L/K trailer was made by Fox for advertisers months ago (obviously before they decided not to pick us up),” he Tweeted, “Nobody should make anything of its presence on the net. I don’t know who put it out there. But it is something Fox had shown me long ago.”
Previous stories indicate this series is as dead as a doornail, which SUCKS. Anyways, enjoy the trailer below and dream of what could have been.
“The series is the story of Nina Locke (Otto) and her three children, Tyler (McCartney), Kinsey (Bolger), and Bode (Gaertner), who 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.”
