43051Re: Sequel to Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World?
- Dec 18, 2010I had already read that there was a sequel to be done and Everyone but Crowe had signed on. Last I heard he had and it was to be based on the book Reverse of the Medal( for those who have read the series). I am sure it is comong but we shall see. I am sure all are waiting on the one big issue of MONEY.

> "Russell Crowe is pushing for a sequel to his 2003 movie Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World - he wants fans to bombard studio bosses at 20th Century Fox with messages to back his campaign. The Gladiator star is keen to reprise his role as Jack Aubrey in the film based on the Napoleonic Wars. He's posted a message on Twitter.com in a bid to garner support from his fans to help resurrect the film. He writes, 'If you want a Master and Commander sequel I suggest you e-mail (film executive) Tom Rothman at Fox and let him know your thoughts.' Crowe's appeal has already worked - a Fox spokesperson has revealed the company has so far been inundated with requests for the movie and admits staff are now looking into the prospect.
