I would set everything pretty flat in-camera (contrast, saturation etc.) and just do what I want with it in post.
This guy has a pretty good video about setting up a 7D to shoot your video flat. I couldn't find anything on 5D but you could probably look at what he does and just do it on your 5D.

Light it as if you're shooting b&w, higher contrast, hotter keys, etc.
This is just by word of mouth, but I hear there are benefits to shooting b&w in camera with the 5D/7D. Something about it being able to capture more detail than it would in color mode because the sensor & processor are working at their highest efficiency at that point. Again, very hearsay, but worth testing out.
