Paramount Pictures has announced that it is set to reboot its classic horror film, Sleepy Hollow. Lindsey Beer has been signed on to write, direct, and produce the high-profile project.
A leading international publication reports that Beer will be producing alongside Todd Garner and Spencer Walken of Broken Road Productions.
Sleepy Hollow tells the tale of the headless horseman who terrorises a small town and its newest resident, Ichabod Crane. The film has seen adapted many times over the decades.
Some of the most popular iterations include the 1949 Disney animated movie, Paramount's 1999 film starring Johnny Depp as Crane with Tim Burton directing, and the 2010s Fox TV series. Details about the upcoming version are under wraps.
The film is a part of Beer's overall deal with the studio. She is set to make her directorial debut with Paramount's Pet Sematary, to be produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.
Beer is best known for writing Star Trek films for Paramount and Bad Robot. She also serves as showrunner and creator for Netflix's The Magic Order, based on the comics by Mark Millar.
