Casting continues on Hulu’s Locke & Key pilot, with Deadline revealing that young It star Jackson Robert Scott is set to reunite with director Andy Muschietti on the small screen adaptation of the IDW comic by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
The site reports that Scott will play Bode Locke, the youngest member of the Locke family. His character description reads: “Filled with all the optimism and imagination of an exuberant eight-year-old, Bode is especially attuned to the supernatural possibilities of Keyhouse… and especially vulnerable to the unnatural forces circling his family.”
Earlier this month, Frances O’Connor (The Conjuring 2) signed on for the lead role as mother Nina Locke, who takes her three children to live in their ancestral home in Maine following the gruesome murder of her husband, where the children discover that the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. However, little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.
Locke & Key will see Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel) serving as showrunner, and executive producing with Muschietti, Hill, Barbara Muschietti, Lindsey Springer, Ted Adams and David Ozer of IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs from Circle of Confusion.
