Today's OUTLANDER news
1) Diana posted a new blog entry asking for our opinions and suggestions on a possible redesign of the OUTLANDER book covers when AN ECHO IN THE BONE comes out next year.
So if you have any ideas, please post them either on her blog or on Compuserve (here).
And if you have a good idea but you are too nervous to suggest it directly to her, post it here and I will be more than happy to pass it on to Diana on your behalf.
This is a very interesting article and I would encourage you to take a look at it. James McAvoy and Keira Knightley are mentioned as possible casting choices, but I hasten to add that I have no idea whether they're really being considered or not.
And in case you're wondering, Diana has absolutely no influence over the casting of the OUTLANDER movie. She commented today on Compuserve, "They might ask what I thought, just to be polite, but I don't have any power to affect whom they cast, at all."
Thoughts? Opinions? Speculations? What do you think of the idea of an OUTLANDER movie?
Personally I am very skeptical that any feature-length film could possibly do justice to the story, or the characters -- so many movie adaptations of popular books end up disappointing those who loved the books -- but I will certainly go see an OUTLANDER movie if one does get made.
