“Transformers” and “Star Trek” scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are tipped to pen and produce a feature adaptation of Joe Hill’s comic book “Locke and Key” for DreamWorks Pictures says Latino Review.
Set in a small Massachusetts village, the story follows a mother and her three children who move into their family estate after her husband is murdered.
The vast estate has many areas only accessible by special keys, while a malevolent force within the house lures the husband’s killer to the town to finish off the rest of the family.
The project was previously setup at Dimension Films. Author Hill is the second child of acclaimed horror author Stephen King.
