'Perhaps potentially pre-proposed a possibility?' - bloody hell, did Crowe really say that? I hope not.

Whom do we propose for Lucky Jack?

Seeing RC lately, I’d assume he’d be offered a spot as “Yellowed Admiral”, or a master attendant at a dockyard.

I propose Tom Hardy, and no heel taps Gentlemen.

He’d need a blonde wig and an officer’s jacket but apart from that he’s battle-ready - except of course he’s much too thin - he’ll need to wear a cushion round his belly to make him authentic.

Between his own productions, Venom and Mad Max, Hardy is booked solid for at least 3 years.
Not a chance for a major movie sequel in my view.

A TV series is always possible and probably the best means to bring the books to a viewing audience.

That dragons in the Royal Navy book series is still kicking around but lacks a home.

In my opinion Christoph Waltz was born to play Stephen.

Oh, what a perfectly perfect idea!  He's nowhere near ugly enough, but that can be managed.

Is it too late now that audiences have Paul Bettany in their minds' eyes, though?

Could Waltz do a convincing Irishman? I doubt it. Find an Irish actor to play an Irishman, I say.

Oh, come on, he was making a wry comment on how reliable are such whispers in Hollywood.  Hawkeye Pierce once complained that someone had given "a firm possibility of a definite maybe", along the same lines.
