Universal Developing LOCKE & KEY Feature Film Adaptation; Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci Will Produce

The graphic novel Locke & Key has had a difficult road to being adapted in the past, but the prospect of seeing the story translated onscreen just became quite a bit more promising.  Heat Vision reports that Universal has picked up the supernatural comic series to develop as a feature film, with Star Trek and Transformers scribes/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci onboard to produce.  Created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, the graphic novel centers on three siblings who return to their family home in Massachusetts following their father’s murder, where they stumble upon magical keys that give them various powers and abilities.

Locke & Key was initially developed as a potential television show produced by Kurtzman and Orci, but Fox ultimately decided to pass on the Mark Romanek-helmed pilot in 2011.  There’s no guarantee that a feature film adaptation will make it all the way to production, but Universal is certainly going to give it a go.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the failed pilot.
