"James Fenimore Cooper wrote the novel The Last of the Mohicans in 1826. Then, many films were adapted from the material, including a famous 1920 adaptation from directors Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourneur, and a 1992 version from Michael Mann and star Daniel Day-Lewis. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it's coming to the screen again. This time, as an HBO Max television series.

The forthcoming The Last of the Mohicans series promises to be a reworking of the original premise, involving a star-crossed love story amidst the backdrop of the French-Indian War. The script will be co-written by Cary Joji Fukunaga (No Time to Die, True Detective) and Nick Osborne (Remember Me). Directing the project will be Nicole Kassell, who's worked on many acclaimed Damon Lindelof projects including Watchmen and The Leftovers. She's also directed celebrated TV shows like Better Call Saul and Westworld. The Last of the Mohicans was previously being developed as a limited series at FX in 2013, but the project stalled and is no longer moving forward…."

I wonder if they can make it better than the 1992 film?

which in fairness though not good, is by no means terrible.

Glad you like it my friend!.

I'd be shock if they can beat the 1992 film…that was a work of art.

That was a great movie with great music too.

Red leather uniforms for the british?
Leather is very in at the moment (the moment being the last 20 years)

Sigh. Pass. They have to 'rework' a classic….why?

Because every film ever made has virtually nothing to do with the original book. 1992 LotM is one of my favorite movies still.

LOTM 1992 version is my favorite movie.What is HBO Max?

Warspite113 Jan 2020 3:39 p.m. PST

I have to say that when I heard Michael Mann was doing the 1992 version I feared the worst. I based that judgement on Miami Vice and Manhunter – good in their own way but not costume dramas.
When I finally saw Last of the Mohicans I was blown away by it, still one of my all-time favourite films.

Then I tried to read the original book… don't!
It is almost unreadable. Fenimore Cooper does not believe in using one word when 12 or 15 will do, how they ever got a good script out of that book is beyond me!


marco56 Supporting Member of TMP14 Mar 2020 2:43 a.m. PST

Is this still happening?

Henry Martini01 Apr 2020 7:25 p.m. PST

More histerical (deliberate misspelling) TV for fetishists.

Historydude1807 Apr 2020 5:49 p.m. PST

Good. Hope it will be better than the 1992 movie.

marco56 Supporting Member of TMP12 Apr 2020 7:52 p.m. PST

It would be hard pressed to beat that movie.

marco56 Supporting Member of TMP16 May 2020 1:15 p.m. PST

Any updates on this?I haven't seen anything on it since January.It's not being advertised on the HBO Max website.
