It seems that Russell Crowe might be hitting the high seas once again. 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.
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.
