Casting has been going smoothly for the Len Wiseman-directed pilot for Fox's SLEEPY HOLLOW as they've just added John Cho for a guest starring role as local cop Andy Dunn, according to Deadline. The pilot was written by Alex Kurtzman, Bob Orci, and Philip Iscove.
A modern–day supernatural thriller based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, the project, from 20th TV and K/O, follows Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) as he partners with Sleepy Hollow’s Detective Abbie Archer (Nicole Beharie) to solve the mysteries of a town ravaged by the battle between good and evil. A captain in the Revolutionary War, where he takes off a horseman’s head, Ichabod gets time warped into the present day, where he is confused by modern technology but turns out to be a great detective once his enemy, The Headless Horseman, comes back to haunt the town.
It's great seeing the horror genre getting new life on the small screen with all of these potentially awesome horror series on tap, but you know some of them are bound to disappoint. Will SLEEPY HOLLOW be one of them? It's still too early to tell but I do like that this series will be taking the same approach that A&E did with BATES MOTEL in that it will take place in modern-day. Time will tell!
