Stuart Hazeldine has been hired to re-write an adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's historical novel Agincourt.

Michael Mann will be directing the project, which centers on archer Nicholas Hook. The young forester is saved by Henry V after the king notices his exceptional archery skills. He develops into a warrior and ends up falling in love with young woman whose chastity he saved from a lustful priest.

The Battle of Agincourt was a major English victory in the Hundred Years' War. The battle occurred on Friday, 25 October 1415 (Saint Crispin's Day), near modern-day Azincourt, in northern France.

Michael Mann is best known for directing Public Enemies and is also attached to helm a currently untitled cybercrime thriller with Chris Hemsworth and Viola Davis starring.

No production schedule has been released.
