Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Bobby Cohen will produce the project via their Universal-based K/O Paper Products banner. 

Locke & Key tells the story of three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts.

The stories expanded to tell a bi-generational coming-of-age tale that encompasses heroism and tragedy and thrills and chills.
