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.

Yes, I do fear that but Outlander does have all the aspects he loves so it could be a match made in heaven or... he'll screw it up. If he was smart he'd figure out that Outlander fans are not going to stand for him messing with the characters but who said anyone in Hollywood was smart.

I hope it is good for your sake and that of the other fans.
