Kurtzman And Orci Adapting Graphic Novel Locke & Key
Forgive me for being one of those Lost fanatics that The Onion makes fun of, but when I see the phrase Locke and Key, I immediately start thinking of theories. Is a key to the temple going to explain John Locke being inhabited by the smoke monster? Is Key the name of the mysterious Man in Black?
Time to calm down, everyone who thinks like me. Locke and Key, as it turns out, is a graphic novel about a mysterious house in Massachusetts-- and now it's about to be a movie. Latino Review's tipster reports on the goings-on with the rights to the film, which had been held by Dimension Films until recently. Both Frank Darabont and Stephen King's son Joe Hill had passed by the project, but now it's in the hands of those guys who will produce pretty much every movie you see from now on-- Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
They're setting up the project at DreamWorks, and are apparently just producers on the project at this point. Of course, Kurtzman and Orci worked closely with J.J. Abrams on Star Trek, and Abrams created Lost, so the connection is still there! Still think I'm crazy? Actually, don't answer that question.
