FX Developing ‘The Last of the Mohicans’ Miniseries

FX The Last of the Mohicans Limited Series
FX / 20th Century Fox

We were excited enough by the prospect of FX developing a limited series out of the Coen Brothers’ classic ‘Fargo,’ but the cable network’s latest miniseries venture could prove its most epic yet. FX has begun development on ‘Mohicans,’ adapted from the 1862 James Fenimore Cooper novel, ‘The Last of the Mohicans,’ with some very familiar names on the writing staff.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Crowe, co-writer for the 1992 film of the same name starring Daniel Day-Lewis, will pen the script alongside Kerry McCluggage (‘Miami Vice’) and Steve Beck, who also co-developed the project. Crowe and McCluggage will executive produce ‘Mohicans,’ while Beck will serve as a producer.

For those unfamiliar with the story itself, ‘The Last of the Mohicans’ tells the story of America’s national beginnings through the eyes of Cooper’s characters. ‘Mohicans’ ranks as the latest historical adaptation eyed for development at FX, which already has ‘Conquistadors,’ Paul Giamatti‘s ‘Mayflower,’ Sam Mendes‘ ‘Grand Hotel,’ Shawn Ryan’s adaptation of the British ‘Mad Dogs,’ ‘Sutton,’ based on J.R. Moehringer’s novel and adapted by Alexander Payne, and the six-part Stephen Gaghan Vietnam War story ‘They Marched Into Sunlight.’

Well, what say you? Do you think FX could do justice to ‘The Last of the Mohicans’ as a miniseries?
