You know who you are. You melt into a puddle of goo at the name “Jamie Fraser.” You want a tall red-haired Scot to call you Sassenach in a low, growly, I’m-taking-you-to-bed voice. If Jonathon Randall were standing in front of you, you’d gladly castrate him with your bare hands.
I know this is very preliminary, but it seems that a new production outfit is rolling out seven films…and one of them is Outlander!
I know ABC had an option a few years back for a mini-series but let it lapse. I’m a bit wary of a feature film, given the breadth of the book. I’d much rather see it as a 12-hour mini-series on HBO (the better to get a peek at Jamie’s bum!) I know she’s a bit long in the tooth, but I think Alex Kingston would make an excellent Claire…she’s got the hair, and to paraphrase Joey Tribbiani, has experience in medical acting.
So, we have a glimmer, let’s see if it materializes!
