Russell Crowe Pursuing More Master & Commander?

Posted on Friday' date=' July 17th, 2009 by Russ Fischer



An AP story that I caught via USAToday says that Russell Crowe is looking to reprise his role from Master & Commander. He says a script has been completed based on The Reverse of the Medal,

which is novel number eleven in the twenty-volume series by Patrick

O’Brian. Speculation has long run rampant (well, perhaps not ‘rampant’,

but the subject still comes up) that Crowe was interested in another filmmag-glass_10x10.gif, but this is the first real confirmation we’ve had. The report doesn’t name the screenwriter.

Given that the film has been a favorite among Crowe fans and that

another seventeen novels remain unadapted (the first film drew from

three books), sequel talk has cropped up occasionally in the years

since Peter Wier’s film appeared in 2003. But in 2005 Weir said he

didn’t think it was likely, which isn’t a huge surprise. Making a big

nautical adventure is expensive, and Master & Commander isn’t the

sort of film that sets the box office on fire. Doing another $150m

adult adventure picture at sea seems like a risky move. It’s not the

sort of moviemag-glass_10x10.gif

Fox makes now. Crowe isn’t even signed for another film, though Paul

Bettany and other cast members were signed to multiple pictures at one

time. That was six, seven years ago, however, and probably doesn’t mean

anything now.




Indeed, Crowe is quoted saying “there’s still a long way to go,” in

the process to getting another film made. I won’t pretend to have read

the books, but following is a block quote of synopsis from Amazon.

Regardless, I’d love to see another film in this series. As the AV Club

has noted, this could easily have been the beginning of a great

franchise, and one with some hilariously memorable sequences: “Fox

should green-light an adaptation of the second novel, Post Captain, solely for the sequence where Russell Crowemag-glass_10x10.gif sneaks across the Spanish border in a bear costume.”

Brief synopsis:

Ashore between cruises, Captain Jack Aubrey is persuaded

to sink some money into an investment scheme. Soon this innocent

decision enmeshes him in various criminal and even treasonous

enterprises, which threaten to destroy his entire career. Bad luck? A

deliberate plot?





O original, ao meu ver, era um raro épico de ação voltado a adultos, regido com elegância narrativa e sofisticação visual por Peter Weir. Custou caro e não rendeu muita grana, infelizmente.


Mas a perspectiva de ver Jack Aubrey e Stephen Maturin novamente é excitante, pois é raro ver uma sequência que a uma história com inerente potencial para continuidade.

Russell Crowe instiga fãs indicando sequência de Mestre dos Mares - O Lado Mais Distante do Mundo
Por Taiani Mendes — 27/11/2017 às 17:04

Cadê os admiradores da série literária Aubrey-Maturin?


Lançado em 2004, Mestre dos Mares - O Lado Mais Distante do Mundo retrata os esforços do incansável capitão britânico Jack Aubrey (Russell Crowe), em missão contra uma embarcação francesa durante as Guerras Napoleônicas. Dirigido por Peter Weir, é baseado em volumes da série Aubrey-Maturin, composta por 20 livros escritos por Patrick O'Brian. Conteúdo para sequências não faltam e Crowe resolveu mobilizar os fãs para voltar ao personagem.

"Para os admiradores de Aubrey-Maturin, ouvi sussurros de que uma segunda viagem potencialmente pode estar sendo vista como uma possibilidade. Aficionados por O'Brian, façam a 20th Century Fox saber do seu interesse."



For the Aubrey Maturin lovers , I do hear whispers indeed that a second voyage is perhaps potentially pre-proposed a possibility . So O’Brian affectionate’s and aficionados , let @20thcenturyfoxknow of your pleasure .



Esta não é a primeira vez que o ator tenta empurar o projeto pela força do público. Em 2010 ele usou seu perfil no Twitter para pedir que os admiradores da aventura náutica mandassem mensagens para o executivo Tom Rothman, na época CEO da Fox.

Contando também com Paul BettanyJames D'Arcy Joseph Morgan no elenco, Mestre dos Mares venceu dois Oscars: direção de fotografia e edição de som. Depois desse filme Peter Weir fez apenas Caminho da Liberdade. Será a hora de voltar?



Vi o primeiro filme na época. Tinha achado interessante, mas chato no geral. Entretanto, era adolescente. Sei lá como o filme desceria comigo hoje.
