It’s been a long and winding road to a proper adaptation of Joe Hill’s Locke & Key, and there may yet be more disappointment in store. Reports indicate that Hulu has passed on a pilot from It director Andrés Muschietti, leaving it uncertain the series will find a home.
The latest stab at a Locke & Key TV series hit a snag losing Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson, but progress rolls on with its first official star. The Conjuring 2 alum Frances O’Connor will lead the latest adaptation in a key (well, Locke) role.
Nobody panic, but the fifth or sixth iteration of a Locke & Key TV series has hit something of a snag. Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson had to bow out of directing the Hulu project, but already has a replacement with significant It factor.
FX and Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain has shown us a bleak, vampire-run future one teaser at a time, but the full trailer is finally ready to fight back. See for yourself, as the fourth and final season’s full promo teases a shocking twist for David Bradley’s Sertrakian.
The sun may rise on vampire TV series anew, but FX’s The Strain is preparing for eternal night. The fourth and final season adapting Guillermo del Toro’s vampire lore is headed to FX, as The Strain unleashes an intentionally viral promo for its bloody endgame.
Maybe the fourth (or fifth…or sixth…) time’s a charm for Joe Hill’s Locke & Key. The author’s acclaimed fantasy-horror graphic novel series has come absurdly close to making the leap from page to screen on more than one occasion, but that was back before streaming services began producing their own original content, giving a home to riskier, more ambitious projects — stuff like, say, Locke & Key, which is once again in development as a TV series, this time at Hulu with Carlton Cuse (LOST) serving as showrunner and producing alongside Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange), who will also direct several episodes of the first season.
Love or hate the final seasons of LOST, there’s little denying the mythology got a bit … abstract toward the end, between light-filled island corks and temples. That said, producers now reveal that the final episodes were meant to introduce an island volcano that tied things together, but got too costly to depict onscreen.
It’s taken awhile for Amazon’s Jack Ryan prequel series to get off the ground, and with John Krasinski in the title role, we’re finally starting to see more cast. First to join the newer, younger, funnier Jack Ryan is none other than Abbie Cornish in a leading role.
Even as Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain was eagerly anticipated for a live-action adaptation, few would argue that the FX series has lost some steam in its second and third years. Prior reports from del Toro capped the series around five seasons, but FX will officially eradicate the infection after four next year.
