I was pretty excited when I heard that Mark Romanek would be directing the pilot for Fox's adaptation of Joe Hill's Locke & Key series. Romanek is best known for his work in the music video world creating memorable work like the Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" video. He's a pretty adept feature director too with his two films, One Hour Photo and Never Let Me Go, being equally haunting and exquisite. Then the bad news hit, the show was not picked up.
He's an art teacher with some sketchy memories about his past that appears frequently to help the family whenever they get into a pinch
