Shakespeare wrote a play about the Battle of Agincourt (Henry V), Bernard Cornwell recently wrote a best selling book about the lead up to it (Agincourt) and now filmmaker Michael Mann is considering a movie based on Cornwell’s book, according to an interview in the Financial Times.

Mann directed another historical film, The Last of the Mohicans.

Don’t hold your breath, though. Mann is also considering a film about 1940’s Chicago’s crime boss, Tony “Big Tuna” Accardo and is currently producing a series for HBO about horse racing called Luck, due to begin in late 2011 or early 2012.

Neither of those projects are based on books.
