With another winter storm passing through I offer the following:
Patrick O'Brian-based film looking for Actors
from Chartroom Chatter by Twain Braden Ocean Navigator
Now that the square-rigged ship HMS Rose has been purchased
by a film company and is on its way to Baja for production, the
film company is casting around, so to speak, for sailorly actors.
The upcoming high-seas adventure movie, The Far Side of the
World, based on Aubrey-Maturin series that began with Master
and Commander, will be directed by Peter Weir (Truman Show,
Green Card, Dead Poet's Society and Witness). Rose will be
playing the part of Surprise, Jack Aubrey's first command.
The casting director, Judith Bouley, is looking for salty dogs
who can look the part of an 1806 French or British Jack Tar.
The film will be shot in Rosarito. "Rosarito is a beautiful seaside
town with lots of sun, restaurants and beaches. It is a wonderful,
warm place to call home for a few months. Shooting will take
place at Baja, where such movies as Titanic and Pearl Harbor were
filmed," Bouley said. Any sailor out there need further encouragement?
