It and Mama director Andy Muschietti has taken over directorial duties on the pilot of Hulu's Locke And Key from Scott Derrickson, over a scheduling conflict with TNT's Snowpiercer. Muschietti will also get an executive producer credit on the series. 

Comics creator Joe Hill will pen the script for the hourlong pilot. Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel, The Strain, Jack Ryan) will showrun and exec produce alongside Lindsey Springer

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.

Derrickson previously signed onto the project in April and was set to direct multiple episodes. It's unknown whether he's out all his episodes or just the pilot.
