Mann And Hazeldine Head To Agincourt

Michael Mann, the director behind crime classics Heat and Manhunter, is turning his attentions to a more period setting, like his Last Of The Mohicans, to bring to life Bernard Shaw’s novel Agincourt.  Exam writer/director Stuart Hazeldine has been drafted in to adapt Shaw’s book which tells the story of Nicholas Hook who has a death sentence on his head just as Henry V is about to battle the French at the battle of Agincourt.  But with his brilliant archery skills Hook comes to the attention of Henry and is spared, developing into a key warrior in Henry’s army while falling in love with a woman who he saved from a nasty priest.  The project was nearly brought to life back in 2009 when Tudor’s creator Michael Hirst circled it.  Mann is currently working on his cyber-crime-thriller with Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis set to star.  Hazeldine meanwhile has written scripts for big productions such as Alex Proyas’ Paradise Lost and the currently in development Mosses epic Gods And Kings which had Steven Spielberg sniffing around at one point.  Source – Deadline

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email: alex.moss@filmjuice.com
