WarnerMedia’s HBO Max has handed out a script order for the series based on the historical novel by James Fenimore Cooper. This adaptation follows a long line of adaptations of the novel, the last being the 1992 Michael Mann-directed epic starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeline Stowe. The new series is written by Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) and Nick Osborne (Remember Me, All About Steve), with Nicole Kassell (Watchmen) attached to direct. This new take on the classic will be “a retelling of the author’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,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

First put in development in April, the series hails from Paramount Television, where Fukunaga is under an overall deal. For the Nicole Clemens-led studio, Fukunaga has also exec produced Netflix limited series Maniac and TNT’s The Alienist after breaking out as the award-winning director on season one of HBO anthology True Detective.”
