The Outlander franchise is set to return to the big screen in 2019, with the film’s lead star Carrie Coon telling the Hollywood Reporter that she was so excited about the film that she couldn’t wait to see what the fans would think.
“I think the people of the world will be the biggest fans of it,” Coon told the publication.
“We’re going to be the greatest storytellers, and the biggest stars.”
Coon has long been a fan of the series, which focuses on the lives of two sisters, Claire (Elizabeth Banks) and Jamie (Kiernan Shipka), as they navigate a tumultuous divorce.
Coon has said she wanted the film to be a “more realistic” take on the series in terms of its story, and she said that while she wasn’t interested in being a fan, she wanted to be part of the team behind the film.
“It was a huge project for us to make, and we really wanted to make something that was just as good as the books,” Coons said.
“I felt like we were on a very tight schedule and had to make sure we got everything right.”
In her announcement, Coon said that the film was a “big, big step forward” for the franchise, which has always been her favorite.
“We were on the verge of doing this film, and it just never got off the ground,” she said.
