Nick Stahl Cast In LOCKE & KEY TV Series

Nick Stahl (Terminator 3, Carnival) has landed a role on the Joe Hill comic book TV adaptation of Locke & Key.

It has been reported that Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go) is going direct the pilot episode for the series. That has yet to be confirmed as far as I know. Romanek is a very talented director and I am sure he will be able to get this series off to a great start.

The story follows Nina Locke and her three children as they move to Keyhouse, the family home in Lovecraft, MA to recover from an unspeakable horror.  Keyhouse is a mysterious New England mansion with fantastic and transformative keys that are hidden inside its walls. The keys are being are being sought after by a sinister and relentless creature with ties to the family’s past who will stop at nothing to accomplish its goals. Stahl will play an art teacher named Duncan Locke, the younger brother who lives nearby and frequently visits. 
The series is being produced by Steven SpeilbergAlex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.  Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, War of the Worlds) is writing the script. 
Here is the official synopsis from the publisher:

Locke & Key tells of Keyhouse, an unlikely New England mansion, with fantastic doors that transform all who dare to walk through them…. and home to a hate-filled and relentless creature that will not rest until it forces open the most terrible door of them all…! Acclaimed suspense novelist and New York Times best-selling author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box) creates an all-new story of dark fantasy and wonder, with astounding artwork from Gabriel Rodriguez. Hill has received the Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction Collection, the British Fantasy Award for Best Collection and Best Short Story, and the Sydney J. Bounds Best Newcomer Award-2007, among his growing collection of critical accolades.

Locke & Key was nominated for Best Limited Series and Joe Hill was nominated for Best Writer at the 2009 Eisner Awards. 
I think that this is a show I will definitely be watching. What are your thoughts on this news?
