Agincourt, the Movie? Michael Mann gets a rewrite

It was the Medieval sword and arrows and mounted knights fight that was preceded by Henry V’s “St. Crispin’s Day” speech. At least in Shakespeare.

Michael Mann would like to do something a tad more historical, and almost certainly less poetic. And he’s commissioned a writer to take a stab at rewriting a script based on Bernard Cornwell’s historical novel about an English archer who “comes of age” during the epic battle.

Deadline says that Stuart Hazeldine has landed that assignment.

Agincourt took place in 1415, a fight turned by the prowess and superior range of English archery.
