Tudors creator to adapt Agincourt for the big screen

According to Empire, Michael Hirst, creator of The Tudors has signed on to adapt Bernard Cornwell's novel, Agincourt. The novel sold about 200,000 hardcover copies in the UK in its first three months of release and was on the New York Times beststeller list for four weeks.

The story focuses on young Nicholas Hook, an archer who fights beside Henry V in 1415 during the battle of Agincourt. The film is set to shoot the spring of 2011.

Considering that the budget is just $35 million I doubt they'll be able to cast a huge name for the lead role.
