The following is a big, ol' bunch of speculation...and will most likely be shot down by this evening.... but it's too much fun not to share. :)
OK so thanks to Carla... I have come across an article about a film
being scheduled for this summer in the Scottish Highlands.
Apparently, everyone up there thinks it's a remake of Highlander... and they think Kevin McKidd is starring in it.
COMMA mother-blanking HOWEVER....
....that doesn't sound quite right to me.
Here's what we know: Ann Peacock - writer of the Kit Kittredge screenplay and the original Chronicles of Narnia screenplay - is writing the screenplay for Outlander. We knew this wayyyyyy back in early October when Diana "Herself" Gabaldon confirmed it at ComicCon in NYC.
Here's what else we know: Melissa Rosenberg - writer of the Twilight series screenplays - has agreed - or is still in negotiations - to write the screenplay for a Highlander remake (I know, Christopher, I know... THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!! Shhhh... there now...poor dear) and it's rumored that Kevin McKidd will star.
What I find interesting about all of this is that I searched all over IMDB and am not finding much about a Highlander remake... but that's neither here nor there.
What IS here AND there is that there is possibly a finished
OUTLANDER screenplay... and only a planned
I don't want to be a Hysteric or an Alarmist or a flat-out Gossip Monger here...
But you do the math.
What is REALLY going on in the Highlands? They are talking about an August/September shoot in Scotland (Claire traveling... Leoch...Lallybroch) and an October/November shoot in Europe - aka somewhere cold with possible snow ( Wentworth! Wentworth! Wenworth! Oh and that other place, what's that called...oh yeah FRANCE... as in the Abbey. Need I speculate more?)
So that's where Tracey and I are this afternoon. In speculation heaven.
