"The Last Of The Mohicans" on HBO Max

HBO Max has handed out a script order for a new live-action series based on author James Fenimore Cooper's "The Last Of The Mohicans", looking to attract the same audience as STARZ historical romance series "Outlander":

"...the new take is a retelling of the novel's early French and Indian Wars, that focuses on an 'unlikely' romance between 'Uncas', a young 'Mohican'...

"...and Cora, the mixed-race daughter of a British colonel..."

TV Pilot for the series was written by Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga ("True Detective") and Nick Osborne ("All About Steve") with Nicole Kassell ("Watchmen") attached to direct.

"The Last of the Mohicans", later retitled "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" was a 1957 TV series, running one season of 39 half-hour episodes, starring John Hart and Lon Chaney Jr.
