Primarily based on the novels by Patrick O’Brian, MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD was launched almost twenty years in the past, and though the sea-faring journey was supposed to launch a franchise, no sequels materialized. Followers have been begging for one more movie all this time, and Deadline has now reported {that a} new Grasp and Commander film is now within the works at twentieth Century. Patrick Ness (A Monster Calls) is engaged on the script, however the venture continues to be within the early phases so no director is hooked up in the meanwhile.

The 2003 Grasp and Commander movie starred Russell Crowe as Captain Jack Aubrey, “a brash British captain pushes his ship and crew to their limits in pursuit of a formidable French warfare vessel round South America.” The movie additionally starred Paul Bettany as Stephen Maturin, the ship’s physician and Aubrey’s good pal. For these of you hoping that Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany will probably be returning for the brand new movie, I would not maintain your breath. Deadline’s sources say that the brand new Grasp and Commander film will probably be based mostly on the primary e book within the sequence and comply with a younger Aubrey as he is given his first command and varieties his friendship with Maturin. The unique film got here beneath fireplace earlier this year for being boring — one thing I do not agree with — however Russell Crowe was fast to leap to the movie’s protection.

Peter Weirs movie is sensible. An exacting, element oriented, epic story of constancy to Empire & service, whatever the value. Unimaginable cinematography by Russell Boyd & an imposing soundtrack. Undoubtedly an adults film.

Patrick Ness is greatest identified for writing the Chaos Strolling novels, however he branched off to the screenwriting aspect of issues with A Monster Calls and just lately accomplished the script for Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of The Lord of the Flies.
