Essential has fast-tracked the project and is hoping to quickly get it into production sometime next spring.I'm not at all familiar with the books, so we'll rely on Amazon reviewers to provide some further insight.The history surrounding the Scottish clans, the politically charged and divided environment over who is the rightful king (think Braveheart), the fight scenes with Scots and claymores, a great English Red Coat villain, lots of wit and humor, folklore, time travel, etc. I'm surprised the author hasn't mentioned anything on her website. You just might be surprised: hunting, boating, fighting, science, horses, pirates, politics, women, Indians, wars, gambling, history, camping; one of those things should grab your interest, right? There is a ready-made audience and I'm sure a well made movie will do very well. I can't imagine how the entire series could be compressed into just one movie and not diminish the detailed writing.I have read this series many times and will continue to do so. If you make the movie, take your time, spend the money, preserve the story, and don't botch it! I would like to say he would make a really good Jamie.Anyone familiar with the books that can convince me otherwise? The romance is good, but the action and historical aspects are very well-done, and the story is exciting and fast-pased.I'm not sure how much this would appeal to men, as the books were always presented as romances, but I know of very few other authors that have such a wide and varied readership.I also got my sisters-in-law hooked...they're just as excited as I am about this.
Claire is British and has naturally curly hair, and is very confident. *shrug* 5 Ohhhh I am very excited, but alas I am also a female.
As a matter of pure coincidence, I just started listening to Outlander on Audiobook this week and now I find this news.
