Battle of Hastings epic ’1066′

Battle of Hastings epic '1066'“Gladiator” scribe William Nicholson is dusting off his sword and sandals to write “1066,” about the confrontation between England’s King Harold and William, Duke of Normandy, for control of the English throne.

William’s victory at the Battle of Hastings, and the Norman takeover of England, earned him the moniker William the Conqueror. It was the last successful hostile invasion of the country.

Nicholson’s script will focus on the comradeship-turned-deadly rivalry between William and Harold, who died in the battle after being shot in the eye with an arrow.
