Mann’s “Agincourt” Gets New Scribe

Stuart Hazeldine (“Gods and Kings,” “Paradise Lost”) has been hired to rewrite the script for the film adaptation of Bernard Cornwell’s “Agincourt”.

Michael Mann is attached to direct this story of a young man under a death sentence who is saved by his skills as an archer when King Henry V notices him.

The archer develops into a warrior and falls in love with a young woman whose virtue he saved from a lecherous priest, while the king prepares to lead his outnumbered English troops against the French in the Battle Of Agincourt.

Michael Hirst and Benjamin Ross penned previous drafts. Mann will shoot the film after he wraps his Chris Hemsworth-led cyber crime thriller at Legendary Pictures.
