Agincourt Michael Mann

Though he’s set to shoot his first film in three years this month, the untitled cyber theft thriller starring Chris HemsworthMichael Mann is still keeping an eye on what comes next.

Originally floated as his next potential film in 2010, Mann started developing “Agincourt” with a script by “Elizabeth” and “The Tudors” writer Michael Hirst before bringing on “RKO 281” director Benjamin Ross for a rewrite. Now Deadline reports that a new writer has been brought on in the form of Stuart Hazeldine (the writer behind Alex Proyas' scuttled take on “Paradise Lost” and co-writer of Moses movie “Gods and Kings”).

Adapted from the Bernard Cornwell novel, the film retells the famous battle between Henry V’s English Army and the French Army, and focuses on “a young man with a death sentence who is saved when his skills with the bow catch the attention of the king. The archer develops into a warrior and falls in love with a young woman whose virtue he saved from a lecherous priest.” Seeing as we’re big fans of Mann’s last historical epic, “Last of the Mohicans,” we can’t help but get a little excited. Since Mann still has his next film to shoot and the already long development process “Agincourt” has had (not to mention all the other projects he’s been linked to in the past), we’re assuming it’s going to be a while before anything happens.
