Some of you will remember that last year the blogosphere was constantly reporting on director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go) taking on the television pilot for Locke & Key, based on Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez‘s comic series. Fox didn’t end up optioning the series, but did they did premiere the pilot last month at Comic Con to a few hundred people. For everyone else who wasn’t in attendance, a trailer for the show ended up online, which you can watch below.
Here is the official synopsis from the comic:
Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them…. and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all…! Acclaimed suspense novelist and New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box) creates an all-new story of dark fantasy and wonder, with astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez. Hill has received the Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction Collection, the British Fantasy Award for Best Collection and Best Short Story, and the Sydney J. Bounds Best Newcomer Award-2007, among his growing collection of critical accolades.
