According to Deadline, actor Nick Stahl has been signed to the pilot episode of Locke & Key for Fox television. Stahl will play Duncan Locke, the younger brother of Rendell Locke, who was murdered by a deranged student. According to the Deadline article, Locke & Key was originally going to see a summer release, but now the studio is considering it for the fall.
While I remain cautious over the announcement that the pilot is getting bumped to a later date, the fact that the new schedule has it appearing when more people will be around to watch gives me hope that the show will be accepted, done right, and get an ongoing series.
And if you haven’t read Locke & Key, by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, what’s wrong with you?
