Last Of The Mohicans is being turned into a TV show with an excellent team attached

The beloved drama is heading to the small screen.

The score, the cinematography, the action set-pieces, the performance from Daniel Day-Lewis.

It may be turning 28 this year but Michael Mann's adaptation of James Fenimore Cooper's novel is a bonafide classic.

Well, fresh from making the latest Bond film in No Time To Die, Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) and director Nicole Kassell (Watchmen) are teaming up for the TV adaptation of the beloved film.

WarnerMedia's upcoming streaming service HBO Max has handed out a script order for the TV series. Fukunaga and Nick Osborne (Remember Me, All About Steve) will be writing the series with Nicole Kassell directing.

The Hollywood Reporter has said the new version will be a "retelling of Cooper's French and Indian War novel that focuses on the unlikely romance between Uncas, a young Mohican, and Cora, the mixed-race daughter of a British colonel."

The HBO Max project is the latest adaptation of Last of the Mohicans.

The story was originally adapted in 1920 and the BBC also made a TV series of it in 1971, but it's the 1992 feature starring Day-Lewis that's most prominent in the minds of viewers.

We're not completely against this adaptation because Watchmen was excellent - it made our list of the best new shows in 2019 - and Fukunaga has proven that he has a knack of making outstanding TV.

HBO Max is set to launch in May in the US.
