Ron Moore adapting Outlander for TV?  
Sorry there has been a lack of activity here but life has been busy and well there just hasn't been a lot of Outlander news. That is changing. According to Syfy's site Ron Moore is adapting the Outlander novel for a Cable series. Apparently Sony has just closed a deal with Diana Gabaldon for the rights to Outlander. Diana confirms this on her Facebook page. If you want to read more about this you should check out this LINK.

How are you feeling about this news?

I'm actually hoping something will come of this because even if it isn't as great as we want it puts Outlander out there and makes it possible for a true to the books adaptation. Of course, while I loved Ron Moore's work with Battlestar Galactica, I don't know how I feel about him being the writer behind this project. It could be great and then it could be Caprica. Of course, Moore is a big name giving us fans who want to see Outlander on screen more hope.

It is odd to me that from DG's description I have a very clear image of Jamie. I do worry about this with actors but as it is nearly impossible to find an exact duplicate of people I'm willing to concede that if major points are met then I'm good.

I do hope they don't stray from the story too. I really think that it could be great especially for a show.

Ron Moore can be quite good but I fear he'll think it needs something we won't want to see as a fan. But then he loves the emotionally poignant moments which Outlander has in spades.

My feeling is that if it doesn't succeed then it is in the world of Hollywood and they could redo it or there will be a fan who redoes it and stays true to the story...

I love all forms of Outlander. I can't help myself.
