Hulu’s adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill and artist Gabriel Rodriguez has cast Frances O’Connor in the lead role as Nina Locke. Carlton Cuse and Hill are collaborating on the script for the Locke & Key pilot. Cuse will serve as showrunner, while Andy Muschietti will direct. IDW Entertainment president David Ozer and Hill also exec produce.
Ozer said of the casting:
“We are thrilled to have the multidimensional talents of Frances O’Connor to breath color and life into this pivotal character in our series, and along with a stellar production team in place, we have no doubt that we will be able to bring Joe Hill’s creative vision to the small screen.”
The story of Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who, after the murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Maine with their mother Nina (O’Connor) only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. Little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
