Russell Crowe would like to be Master and Commander once more

According to the Associated Press, Crowe has entered into early negotiations to star in sequel to Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World.

Crowe revealed that there is a script already written, largely based off of the 11th novel in the 20-book series, The Reverse of the Medal, but it's too early to tell if the deal will come together or not.

"There's still a long way to go," the New Zealand-born actor told AP at a cricket match between England and Australia in London. He said talks had been taking place with the owner of the rights to the novels.

The Reverse of the Medal sees Crowe's Captain Jack Aubrey sailing into the Carribbean with his HMS Surprise ship, where he discovers his illegitimate son, Samuel Panda, now a Catholic priest.

The first Master and Commander: The Far Side Of The World film took material from several of the books, written by Patrick O'Brian, so it isn't clear if this is the storyline the film will be centered on.

I thought the first film was a cracker. Crowe was brilliant and you really felt you where on the cramped ship with them. Well worth watching the extras on the DVD just to see how much work went into making it.
