Paramount Sets Lindsey Beer to Write and Direct ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Reboot

Paramount has hired Lindsey Beer to both write and direct a remake of Sleepy Hollow, making it her second directing gig.

A staple film around the Halloween season is one of Tim Burton’s best, Sleepy Hollow. The story follows constable Ichabod Crane, as he travels to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of murders, each one found decapitated by an unknown assailint. The film was quite the hit, pulling in over $200 million at the box office back in 1999. The movie starred some of the biggest names at the time, including Johnny Depp alongside Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson, Christopher Lee, and Ian McDiarmind. Now it seems Paramount is ready to return to the little town and feel the wrath of the Headless Horseman once more.

Deadline reports that Paramount is working on a reboot of the 1999 film with Lindsey Beer set to both write and direct the film. Details remain underwraps, with no other talent currently attached to the project. The film is set to be produced by Todd Garner and Spencer Walker for Broken Road Productions.

Beer has made quite the name for herself as a writer in Hollywood these days, as shes has written multiple upcoming films such as Hello Kitty, Bambi, and even the upcoming Star Trek film for Paramount. She’s even working as the showrunner and creator for The Magic Order on Netflix, a series adapted from the comics of the same name by Mark Millar.

Sleepy Hollow will be her second job as a director, having recently just wrapped on Paramounts Pet Sematary film, which is now in post-production and eyeing a release later this year.
