The Last of the Mohicans TV series in development under Bond 25 director

Variety is reporting that True Detective and Bond 25 director Cary Joji Fukunaga is teaming with Nicole Kassell (Watchmen) for a potential TV adaptation of James Fenimore Cooper’s 1826 novel The Last of the Mohicans: A Narrative of 1757.

The trade reveals that the series will be a retelling of the novel, which “re-centers the classic tale on the unlikely romance between Uncas, a young Mohican, and Cora, the mixed-race daughter of a British colonel.”

“The clash of civilizations during the Seven Years War, which frames the story of Last of the Mohicans, has been a long-time passion of mine,” said Fukunaga. “It was a world war before the term even existed. The opportunity to recreate the story’s strong-willed and free-thinking characters, with talents including [writer] Nick Osborne and Nicole Kassell, is incredibly exciting to me. Together with Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, we have the chance to revive the forgotten ancestors that define American identity today.
