Derrickson previously directed Doctor Strange.
2011 saw the first attempt at adapting Locke And Key to television, with a pilot not picked up at FOX. In 2014, Locke And Key was in production at Universal to become a trilogy of movies. Third time's the charm, perhaps? Hulu has ordered a pilot for Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez's horror fantasy series, which could be a good home for the series as Hulu also has Dimension 404 and Castle Rock.
Doctor Strange's Scott Derrickson is attached to direct the pilot episode. The director has a background in horror, previously directing The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister, and Deliver Us From Evil. If picked up to series, Derrickson will direct multiple episodes before working on the sequel to Doctor Strange.
Locke And Key is the story 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.
