Could it be? Is it possible? Will we have Outlander in theaters in 2011? I haven’t seen any word on Diana Gabaldon’s website, but I did find this little tidbit on an Outlander (2011) IMDB page:
A British nurse visiting Scotland in 1945 stumbles upon a time portal that transports her to the 18th Century.
It gives the allusion we could have it next year, doesn’t it? Sadly, there isn’t any public information available for this entry yet. Only those with IMDB Pro are able to see it. However, there is a “free 14-day trial” for IMDB Pro and since I had to see if there is anything else….yeah there wasn’t.
According to IMDB Pro, Outlander (2011) is still in the script process, but it is our Jamie and Claire! At least, Diana Gabaldon is acknowledged as the writer along with the following information: Randall Wallace – Writer (screenplay), Neil Kaplan – Producer, Jim Kohlberg – Producer.
Sadly, that’s it, but I have been given hope that we’ll see it sometime next year. I’m hoping for early next year, but that is probably wishful thinking.
In October 2008, Variety was reporting that Outlander may not be the only novel in the series to be filmed.
Essential Pictures has launched development of “Outlander” as a potential franchise based on the Diana Gabaldon series of fantasy novels. The newly minted shingle’s out to directors with an adaptation from Randall Wallace (“Braveheart”); the goal is to start production next spring. Gabaldon’s series of six novels center on an 18th century Scottish Highlander and his time-traveling wife.
