News | Sleepy Hollow series still in the works; Total Recall director attached

We’ve heard whispers about the television incarnation of Washington Irving short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, but assumed it was just that – whispers. Now it’s being reported that the series is not only in the works, but has a high profile name attached.

Apparently, Star Trek writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, with 20th Century Fox, are currently pitching a series based on the story, as well as the 1999 Tim Burton film (we assume). As is the current trend, the show will be set in modern day (groan), with Ichabod Crane and Sleepy Hollow’s female sheriff attempting to solve mysteries each week.

Len Wiseman, director of Total Recall, is currently attached to direct. More news on this when we have it. [Deadline]
