The Last of the MohicansLast of the Mohicans Series in the Works from FX – IGN.

This is going to be fantastic!!!

I have loved the film ever since I saw it in theaters, though I was only 8 years old at the time.

I fondly remember my aunts and cousin talking the movie up to me, trying to persuade me that it was filmed in North Carolina and it would be a real treat to go see. I just remember thinking that it was about Indians, the English, and some great fight scenes in the woods. For a kid who pretended being a warrior fighter decimating the fake ranks of enemies as they stormed my barn-fort at the time, I was all like “sure, let’s go see it.”

 A really neat part is that a majority of it was filmed in my home state of North Carolina, with many scenes filmed at a lake not 30-45 minutes from the Home Place where I grew up.

Here’s to hoping that the Series in the works is good. Notably, this seems to be a new trend among Hollywood, in which historical stories are getting dramatic makeovers and documentary-esque shows are becoming full fledged movies. I am thinking specifically of “The Vikings” from the History channel, as well as other shows like Spartacus, John Adams, and some others listed in the link above.

Good television is hard to come by sometimes, but these shows are quality works. I’m looking forward to seeing how this will turn out!
