“IT” Star Joins The “Locke and Key” Pilot

Jackson Robert Scott, the young actor who plays the ill-fated Georgie in the opening scenes of Andres Muschietti’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s “IT,” is re-teaming with the director for the “Locke and Key” series on Hulu.

Based on the acclaimed horror/fantasy comic by King’s son Joe Hill, Muschietti is executive producing and directing the pilot of the series adaptation which follows three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine with their mother Nina (Frances O’Connor).

Keyhouse is an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them. It 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.

Scott will play the exuberant eight-year-old Bode Locke, the youngest of the Locke family who is especially attuned to the supernatural possibilities of Keyhouse and vulnerable to the unnatural forces circling his family.

Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) is set to serve as showrunner on the series while Hill, Barbara Muschietti, Ted Adams, David Ozer, David Alpert and Rick Jacobs will also executive produce.
