After previously failing to find life as either a movie or a series elsewhere, Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez‘s award-winning graphic novel series Locke & Key has now also failed to find a home at Hulu. Last year, the streaming network had ordered a pilot for the adaptation. News on the matter comes from actor Samantha Mathis who mentioned it during an interview with Cultured Vultures.
I just finished that a couple weeks ago. I did a pilot for Hulu called Locke and Key but it didn’t get picked up by Hulu. It’s getting shopped around to Amazon and Netflix and Apple and everyone right now. Who knows, maybe that will end up someplace.
Is that a Marvel series or am I thinking of something else?
Samantha Mathis: It’s not. It’s Joe Hill, Stephen King’s son. A series of graphic novels that are very popular dealing with a haunted house. Very popular. We’ll see what happens.
In the end, Hulu wasn’t the right fit. It will be interesting to see if Netflix, Amazon, or Apple are, of if this comic is just fated to only exist on the page.
