After the underwhelming box office results of "Kick Ass" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World," Steven Spielberg has decided against turning Joe Hill's "Locke and Key" comic book into a feature film. He will instead turn it into a television show.
First released in 2008, "Locke and Key" revolves around three kids who end up watching over a secret, spooky New England mansion filled with mystical doors that transport them to different worlds and give them special powers (like turning into a ghost). Hill's real name is Joseph Hillstrom King, who happens to be Stephen King's son.
Spielberg and the writing/producing team of Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci (Transformers, Star Trek) will produce through DreamWorks TV. Writer/producer Josh Friedman ("Terminator, The Sarah Connor Chronicles") will adapt the comic book for 20th Century Fox TV.

Trailer not what I expected from WP description. All doors lead to people holding weapons not the demonic face dripping scarier than f*ck beings expected from King legacy. With the kind of writer/producer/director talent backing this it better not suck.
