Nicole Beharie - best-known for her role opposite her now-boyfriend Michael Fassbender in 2011's Shame - has been tapped to play the female lead in a modern television adaptation of Sleepy Hollow.
Beharie will play a detective in the small town of Sleepy Hollow, poised to leave for the FBI Academy in a week when she gets involved with Ichabod Crane, a fugitive indicted for the murder of a policeman who claims to be a soldier from the Revolutionary War.
Fringe creators Alex Kurtzman and Robert Orci are on board to pen the pilot and serve as executive producers for the FOX drama. Len Wiseman is set to direct the pilot.
Orlando Jones and Dexter's Katia Winter have also been cast as a detective and Ichabod Crane's wife, respectively.

Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:
How I Met Your Mother: The CBS comedy will be opening its doors for yet another guest star. Amanda Peet, most recently seen in 2012, is currently scheduled for a January visit. No details on her role have yet been announced.
You may know him from Mad TV... or as the 7Up guy… maybe from movies like Evolution or Drumline? At any rate, you know him, and he’ll soon be joining Men in Trees. Orlando Jones will play George, the estranged son of Buzz (John Amos), who will travel to Elmo, Alaska after corresponding with new half-brother, Patrick (Derek Richardson). If you haven’t caught Men in Trees yet, it’s not too late to jump on board. Anne Heche leads a great cast, playing a relationship expert who can’t follow her own advice. She ends up stranded in a small town in Alaska as she works through the pain of a cheating fiance. The series was created by Jenny Bicks (Sex and the City)—great pedigree, interesting characters, and a move to a cushier Thursday at 10 PM timeslot. Jones will guest star for just two episodes of Men in Trees.
