The tale of the infamous Headless Horseman is one that has permeated every aspect of pop culture from books to movies and beyond. Hell, he even makes a guest appearance in Skyrim for god’s sake! Now he may be galloping his spectral way to the small screen.

According to Deadline, the first big drama project of the 2012 pitch season has hit the marketplace. “Sleepy Hollow” hails from Transformers writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with Underworld helmer Len Wiseman on board to direct.

The project, from 20th Century Fox TV and Kurtzman and Orci’s studio-based K/O Paper Products, is a modern–day supernatural thriller based on the legend of Sleepy Hollow. It follows Ichabod Crane as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s local female sheriff to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. Kurtzman and Orci will write the script with Phillip Iscove, on whose idea the project is based.

More as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    If they go along the lines of ‘Sherlock’ I think it could be intriguing.

  • Rottenjesus

    If this was a spinoff of Burton’s SLEEPY HOLLOW movie it would’ve been interesting. A period supernatural mystery series evoking old school Hammer Films atmosphere?

    That would be so much better than this crap.

    Why is it the shittiest writers/directors always get the most work?

    • Terminal

      Networking, connections, and they know how to make broad films for broad audiences that rake in the cash. People like Len Wiseman, Paul WS Anderson, Mc G, Brett Ratner, and Michael Bay unfortunately know how to cater to the lowest common denominator audiences, so they make cash hand over fist, thus garnering them more work. Studios want a salesman, not a storyteller.

    Horrible writers and a horrible director. A solid pairing that will hopefully keep those involved away from more promising projects.
