Finally looking like it's back on track after one previous failed TV pilot and wading through the mire of movie development, the series based on Joe Hill's Locke And Key is moving forward at US streaming service Hulu. And it has just landed a first cast member, with Frances O'Connor aboard.

Locke & Key, which debuted via IDW Publishing in 2008 written by Hill and illustrated by Gabriel Rodriguez, is a complex, sprawling tale that has a history going back to the American Revolution. But the focus is on Nina Locke and her children Tyler, Kinsey and Bode, who are trying to start a new life after surviving an unspeakable horror. Trying to rebuild, they move to the family home known as Keyhouse in Lovecraft, Massachusetts. There, they discover magical keys that can open portals that are also being sought by a terrifying, hate-filled creature who has his own designs on the portals.

O'Connor will be playing Nina in the new show, which Hill is wrangling together with Bates Motel's Carlton Cuse and Andy Muschietti, director of the upcoming It adaptation (so keeping it in the family, given Hill's own link to his father, Stephen King).

O'Connor was last seen in The Conjuring 2 and is at work on historical TV drama Troy: Fall Of A City.
