Hardback, collectors edition of the Fox-approved tie-in to the Peter Weir feature film of O’Brian’s novel, starring Russell Crowe as Jack Aubrey and Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind) as Stephen Maturin.
For the first time, O’Brian is to be brought to life by Hollywood with a depth of imagination and faithfulness to the spirit of the books matched only in scope by its budget and historical attention to detail.
Based on the early novels in the Aubrey – Maturin series, this film will bring the high seas to the silver screen with all the excitement and vivacity of an O’Brian book, and the illustrated companion to the film will showcase the same high production standards and imagination as the film itself.
With unique access to the film set, Tom McGregor will weave together the story of how the world of O’Brian’s books – with its seafaring, swashbuckling adventures, highly drawn characterization and elements of romance and intrigue – was brought vividly to life by Peter Weir (director of Dead Poets’ Society, Greencard, The Truman Show).
