Remember when FOX blew it by passing on the Locke & Key TV series? Well, apparently this is one adaptation that refuses to die. Joe Hill’s critically acclaimed comic book series looks like it may be adapted by Universal as a movie trilogy. Latino Review reports that producer duo, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are in talks with Universal to adapt the comic into a films series. Of course, nothing is set in stone, but this could be the first step toward a proper adaptation of “Locke & Key”.
UPDATED: Orci confirmed the rumors via Twitter.
Orci and Kurtzman are the original producers of the failed TV adaptation, and given their success with Universal (Cowboys & Aliens), the studio might just bite on this one. Venturing into the film world would allow for a much higher budget, higher production quality, and perhaps another director. Stay tuned for any updates.
