Locke & Key TV show

It’s beginning to feel as if the TV gods have a personal vendetta against Locke & Key, the troubled small screen adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s acclaimed horror comic series.

Below, you can read more about the Locke & Key TV show and how it’s still clinging to life. Read More »

Locke and Key

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez‘s Locke & Key is getting a second chance at the small screen. Over five years ago, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) directed a Locke & Key pilot for Fox, but they decided not to move forward with the series. Now, Hulu has ordered a Scott Derrickson-directed and Carlton Cuse-produced Locke & Key pilot.

Below, learn more about the potential Locke & Key television show.

Locke and Key

Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez‘s Locke & Key is coming to the small screen. IDW Entertainment, which published the Locke & Key comics, announced today that Hill will write and executive produce a new Locke and Key TV series. There’s no word yet on which network might air the show, although it seems likely to end up at a cable channel.

Oh, and if all of this sounds oddly familiar, that’s because this is the second attempt to get a Locke and Key TV series off the ground. The first one got as far as a pilot directed by Mark Romanek, but Fox opted not to move forward with it.  Read More »

nos4a2 TV series

AMC is really doubling down on the “gruesome horror adaptation” thing. With The Walking Dead still shambling along and the adaptation of the sure-to-be-controversial Preacher waiting in the wings, the network has decided to adapt Joe Hill‘s excellent novel NOS4A2 into a series. That is one hell of a horror trifecta right there – nothing says AMC like flesh-eating carnage, blasphemous comic book adaptations, and shows about immortal creeps stealing the souls of innocent children.

Hit the jump for everything we currently know about the NOS4A2 TV series.

It’s fun watching Daniel Radcliffe try out strange roles in the wake of Harry Potter’s finale. His latest is Horns, from director Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes), based on the book by Joe Hill. Radcliffe’s character is Ignatiaus “Ig” Perrish, accused of the rape and murder of his girlfriend.

That’s a bad situation to be in, and from there things get weird. Ig wakes up one morning with horns growing from his forehead, and soon leans that they’re part of a new ability: Ig can force people to do things, and plans to use that power to uncover the real killer of his love. Read More »
