    A&E has said recently that it is not interested in funding more Horatio Hornblower movie episodes, even though Granada (the British production company that produces Hornblower) has cleared it with the Forester estate and was working on new scripts. Without A&E, who is more interested in reality TV, Granada can't afford to shoot another film. A&E's attitude is quite sad considering Hornblower performs quite well with American audiences and garners Emmy nominations.

    Ioan Gruffudd himself has stated that he'd be glad to participate in more Hornblower efforts, even lobbying recently for Hornblower on the big screen because of A&E's lack of interest.

    If you're interested in telling A&E how you feel, there's a petition at:

    Signed. I enjoyed watching those almost as much as Sharpe.

    Disappointing - this was an excellent series.
