According to The Hollywood Reporter, the updated Sleepy Hollow TV show being developed by Fringe co-creators and Star Trek writing duo Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and directed by Underworld‘s Len Wiseman, will have an element of sci-fi, not just the supernatural.

The site reports, “In the script, Ichabod is described as a captain in the Revolutionary War who has been to hell and back.

“The former history professor finds himself catapulted to present day Sleepy Hollow, where he’s indicted for the murder of a police officer and forced to prove not only his innocence but make a wary detective believe he’s a traveler from the 18th Century.”
