The World of Patrick O'Brian (FAQ) The much-awaited motion picture is currently in production at 20th Century Fox and Samuel Goldwyn. Filming began 17 June 2002 and runs through this October. Tentative release date is 2003. Directed by Peter Weir, it stars Russell Crowe as Jack Aubrey and Paul Bettany (who co-starred with Crowe in A Beautiful Mind) as Stephen Maturin.
