While Disney+ and Apple TV+ are now active, HBO Max has been quietly acquiring and working on its content library ahead of its 2020 release. Now we know that a Last of the Mohicans series is coming to the streaming platform.
The original novel was written by James Fenimore Cooper in 1826, and it spawned several film adaptations. One famous example is the 1920 version from Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourneur. There was also a 1992 version from Michael Mann starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
The HBO Max version will provide a new spin on the original tale, which details a star-crossed love story with the French-Indian War in the background. The script will be written by Nick Osborne, who worked on Remember Me, and Cary Joji Fukunaga, who is known for No Time to Die and True Detective.
Nicole Kassell will be directing the title, and she is known for Damon Lindelof projects such as The Leftovers and Watchmen, as well as Better Call Saul and Westworld.
HBO Max will be available from May 2020 for subscribers, priced at $15 a month. Other upcoming titles on the platform include Grease: Rydell High, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, South Park, Green Lantern and Strange Adventures.
