Hey Internet, do you like movies about ineffective robots that go back in time to muddled and defective plots riddled with holes? Then do we have a movie for you. Yes, Terminator Genisys is out and it is not good so we turned on the microphones and were unnecessarily harsh on ol’Arnie’s new movie. (Young Arnie was mostly saved from the rancor because he’s not really real.) (more…)
IDW‘s Locke & Key is a wonderful series for any reader to dive headlong into, but its live action pilot left something to be desired. What’s that? You don’t remember a pilot? Us neither, but that hasn’t stopped Universal from eyeing the property for a feature film trilogy.
An ongoing series since 2008, Locke & Key is the brain child of writer Joe Hill and illustrator Gabriel Rodriguez . It deals with a different story arc every couple of issues. The first arc, Welcome to Lovecraft, was acquired by 20th Century Fox TV and produced by Dreamworks TV and K.O. Paper Products. Locke & Key was greenlit, filmed, and ready to air, but ended up being shopped around to other networks to no avail.
Nick Stahl (Terminator 3, Thin red Line, Sin City) has just been added to the cast of the upcoming Fox show Locke and Key. Locke and Key is based on a comic by Joe Hill and will hopefully be coming our way this Fall. Although the show’s original air date for this upcoming Summer had to be pushed back I still think this show will have a lot to offer!
So the plot goes a little something like this…
It tells the story of Nina Locke (Miranda Otto) and her three children, Tyler, Kinsey (Sarah Bolger), and Bode who, after the brutal murder of Nina’s husband Rendell Locke, return to Keyhouse, his old family home in Massachusetts. There, they are pestered by an evil entity named DODGE that’s determined to hold the family hostage one way or another until it gets what it wants. Stahl will play Rendell’s younger brother Duncan Locke, an art teacher, who lives nearby and frequently visits Nina and the kids and who strangely has few memories of his time growing up in Keyhouse.
Besides the stupid sounding name of things this story actually sounds really cool!
Despite the amazing cast Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings) it will be a test to see if the comic can translate well to the small screen. The plot is also good but I’m just not sure there’s enough there to really get something going. So what do you guys think about this show and it’s casting? Are we ready for it or should it be kept under “Locke and Key”? (Sorry guys, had to do it!!)
