A Legend of Sleepy Hollow series is in the works for the 2012 pitch season. The project will be written by Transformers scribes (it had writers?) Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are adapting it from a Phillip Iscove script. Len Wiseman (Underworld) is set to direct. The trio also worked together on the Hawaii Five-0 pilot.
The project is reportedly being shopped to Fox, CBS, ABC and NBC. Given the recent popularity of reworking fairy tales and mystery stories, Sleepy Hollow shouldn’t have trouble finding a home. But it may need to add some zombies, werewolves and/or aliens to really look attractive. Ichabod Crane: Vampire Hunter has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? For more on the project, hit the jump.
