This would make me a very happy man. Plus they could quarantine on the ship while filming. haha! These rumours rarely work out though. This seems like it would be 5 years away. It also needs a Russel Crowe available.

Loved the movie as well. I have the poster hanging in my library. Was hoping for a sequel even with the older actors.

Yeah. I could not resist posting this. I don't want to get my hopes up.
My understanding of the original movie was that they would have liked to make more, but the cost was too prohibitive.

I believe it, just from the production value of the original movie. You can tell that a lot of time, energy and money was spent.

This is one of my favorite movies!  If they can match the quality of the first one, I'm all in.

I would even splurge and go to the theatre to see it.

^Crazytalk. If I never go to a theater again I'm ok with that.

^Is that because of the requirement to wear clothes?  Big con for me I get it, but a good Master and Commander movie might just be worth it.

I haven't put on clothes since March 16, 2020. A bigger issue for me is other people. Like people who can't shut their mouth, or their phone, or who can't stop kicking the back of my chair.

All that said I do agree with you that a new Master and Commander would be worth most movie theater hardships.
