With Andy Muschietti currently developing the Locke & Key pilot for Hulu, a familiar face has joined the show.
As per Deadline, Owen Teague is the latest name to join the pilot, with the young actor having worked with Muschietti on this year’s much-lauded IT – where he played Patrick Hockstetter. In Locke & Key, Teague will be playing the role of Sam Lesser, “a violent and deeply troubled adolescent who kills his own father and then goes on to the Locke house and shoots the Locke kids’ father to death in addition to battering their mother.” Sounds a bit of a wrong ‘un, if you ask us. Already confirmed for the series are Frances O’Connor, Jack Mulhern, Danny Glover and two other IT names, Megan Charpentier and Jackson Robert Scott.
The early word on the series reads:
Locke & Key tells the story of the Locke family and their journey into Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all!
Initially, the rights for Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s Locke & Key were picked up by Dimension Films back in 2008, and then 2010 saw FOX develop a TV series. Sadly, neither of these times saw anything fully come to be where an adaptation was concerned, but now we’re finally getting to see Locke & Key brought to life on the small screen. Lost and The Strain’s Carlton Cuse is on board to serve as showrunner for the series.
As ever, expect more on Locke & Key as it continues to develop.
