Heads will roll–again.
A remake of 1999’s Tim Burton-led Sleepy Hollow is still in the pipeline, and the filmmaker behind the project–Lindsey Beer–has opened up a bit about her new feature.
Beer–who also helmed Pet Sematary: Bloodlines—recently told Collider that she tackled these two horror entries with similar mindsets. “There are a lot of skill sets that are similar in terms of its beloved IP,” Beer said about Sleepy Hollow. “It’s the same kind of thing when I was doing Bloodlines.”
Beer added that when she was working on Bloodlines, she would ask herself, “What would I want to know as a Pet Sematary fan?” So, as she now writes the Sleepy Hollow remake, she said she asks, “What are the questions left unanswered from the book? And what are the parts of the book that haven’t been explored in movies?”
Not much else is yet known about this Paramount Pictures reboot–still in the early stages of production–but Beer is also on board as producer, alongside Todd Garner and Spencer Walken.
The original Sleepy Hollow–directed by Burton and starring Johnny Depp and Christopher Walken–adapted the famous 1820 Washington Irving short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. In the tale, Ichabod Crane travels to the small town of Sleepy Hollow to become its headmaster and becomes the target of the ghost of the Headless Horseman.
