It’s no secret that I love the Locke & Key graphic novels that are written by Joe Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez. It is a story of dark fantasy and wonder about Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them, and that only scratches the surface. When I saw the pilot that was made for the 2011 TV season (starring Miranda Otto, Mark Pellegrino, Jesse McCartney and Sarah Bolger), I loved it so much that I was both shocked and greatly disappointed to learn that it wasn’t picked up and I would never get to see how it would continue.
Then came word that Alex Kurtzman, who was an executive producer on pilot, was now looking to make a trilogy of films to tell the Locke & Key story. So, when I got on the phone with author Joe Hill to talk about the big screen adaptation of Horns, hitting theaters on Halloween, I couldn’t miss an opportunity to get an update on the possibility of seeing Locke & Key on the big screen. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and stay tuned for what he had to say about Horns.
