Master and Commander Sequel in Works?

Well, it has been seven years since I saw the original Master and Commander and the reality of a sequel is beginning to rush past the gunnels. It was a good idea shared by many of those sharing this sea-going action flick.

After winning an academy award in 2004 and being nominated for 8 more, you'd think Master and Commander would be shipshape for a follow-up, but for some reason six years after its initial release, there has been no announced epilogue.

One of the co-stars in this sea going epic said two years ago, "there are like 21 books of Master and Commander, and Fox already own the ship so a lot of people, I think were confused as to why there hasn't been a sequel yet. We'll just have to wait and see. There is talk of it and Peter Weir said that I won't die in the next one, but he said I will die in the third one. So I've still got another movie, and then I've got a death scene! So great! I do hope they make some more as I had great fun making that film."

A third party encounter with Russell Crowe was reported in a Los Angeles Blog. Al Sorkin and Crowe a discussed the project a few months back aboard ship, docked in the San Diego Maritime Museum. Al was an extra and technical advisor on "Master and Commander." Al chatted with Crowe a bit and then attended a local concert with him... "He is definitely interested in a sequel.

There is also considerable work being done on the rig (HMS Surprise) to make her re-seaworthy. Ratlines (polyprope) are being replaced (I think with roblon). The Headrig has more safety lines being run out. And there is a lot of clean up below deck. It was amazing what was left in the fridge freezer. Russell indicated that though Peter Weir is not interested in doing another that possibly a different director would work it out. It would include more land shots and thus can develop the espionage angles and the romance angles."

Will Crowe Go To Sea Again?
