"Elizabeth" scribe and "The Tudors" creator Michael Hirst has been hired to pen the script for "Agincourt" over at Independent Film Co. reports Variety.

The film will focus on Nicholas Hook, the humble archer who fought the French alongside Henry V in 1415 in one of the bloodiest battles in European history.

Hirst will adapt Bernard Cornwell's 2008 best-seller on the subject with filming to kick off in Spring 2011.
