Last Mohicans“The Last of the Mohicans” will be coming to TV. According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX is developing an adaptation of James Fenimore Cooper’s 1826 novel as a miniseries, with Chris Crowe, co-writer of the 1992 Michael Mann film version, on board to pen the script alongside Kerry McCluggage (“Miami Vice”) and Steve Beck. Crowe and McCluggage will serve as executive producers on the project, while Beck will serve as a producer.

The FX project is described as the story of America’s beginnings as a nation as told through the eyes of Cooper’s classic characters from the historical novel The Last of the Mohicans. The novel was first published in 1826. The feature film grossed an estimated $75 million domestically.

The project joins an already announced slate of mini- and exclusive series FX has in the works, one that includes a “Fargo” adaptation being executive produced by the Coen brothers; a look at the Plymouth Colony called “Mayflower”; a Sam Mendes EP’d terrorist attack drama set in a luxury hotel in Paris; an adaptation of the 2011 UK series “Mad Dogs”; and a bank robber drama written by Rob Siegel (“The Wrestler”) and executive produced by Alexander Payne.
