Surely, someone must have posted this somewhere already, and I missed it. But, I just discovered it! I have mixed feelings about it becoming a movie though. I don't want to get disappointed

On the page there are a couple fan-made videos of what I guess they think the movie should be like. I really enjoy the first one. Gerard Butler with red hair to play Jamie, that's just about orgasmic for me!

ETA: And actually, now that I read thoroughly, it sounds like it may be a mini-series, which is even better! More Jame and Claire action on screen!

I must say, the book is waaaay too long for one movie.  Mini series vote from me.

I agree it should be a mini series.  A movie wouldn't do it justice.  That first video was great - especially the music.

I am hoping that either HBO or Showtime does it, so it won't lose it's sexual edge.  I love the youtube casting suggestions if you haven't checked them all out your in for a treat.  Some of them left me definitely cold, I mean Ben Affleck as Jamie give me a break.

I think they will have to cast "unknowns" or it just won't seem right.

Unknowns does sound like a good idea, but I definitely wouldn't be disappointed to have Gerard Butler as Jamie! I mean, come on, he already has the right accent!

Now you have done it!!

I have just started re-reading Outlander for the third time. 

About the movie/series... I would almost be scared to watch.  Jamie and Claire are so fully formed in my imagination, I am worried that it would hinder my enjoyment of watching.. and also ruin somewhat the characters in my imagination.
