    Karl Urban in talks to topline
    13 May 2005

    [​IMG]As ambitious plotlines go, sci-fi flick Outlander must be pretty near the top of the list. It's also near the top of the Most Lunatic Plot list and the Most Unlikely Plot list. The film will tell the story of a man from a distant galaxy who crashes headlong into Earth. But the twist is, that this happens at the time of the Vikings! And that's not all! He has, as if that weren't enough...wait for it…an alien predator in tow.

    Karl Urban of Lord of The Rings and The Bourne Supremacy fame is currently in negotiations to take the role of the crashed pilot, giving him another chance to exercise his world-class smouldering glower. Bob and Harvey Weinstein's new company, currently called the Weinstein Co. will be distributing Outlander (not to be confused with the Sean Connery film Outland). Production designer Patrick Tatopoulos, whose impressive CV includes I, Robot, Godzilla and, er, Super Mario Bros has been given the task of creating the alien predator, whilst Howard McCain (who co-wrote the screenplay with Dirk Blackman) will direct the sci-fi/historical epic.

    Karl Urban, meanwhile, will next be on our screens (save for some Xena Warrior Princess re-runs on the sci-fi channel, anyway) in space horror adventure Doom, which tells the (equally implausible) story of a Special Ops squadron who answer a distress call from a science lab on the planet Olduvai, only to discover that a series of mutant and possibly demonic beings are systematically killing off the population there. Clearly, Urban is becoming adept at kicking all kinds of alien ass.

    Outlander Principal Photography Started
    Source: The Weinstein Company
    November 2, 2006


    Outlander began principal photography on October 16, 2006. The sci-fi action/adventure film stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of The Christ, The Count of Monte Crisco), Sophia Myles (Underworld: Evolution, Tristan + Isolde), Jack Huston (Factory Girl), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and John Hurt (V For Vendetta, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone).

    The film is helmed by Howard McCain from a screenplay he wrote with Dirk Blackman, and produced by Ascendant Pictures/VIP Medienfronds 4 in association with Rising Star.

    Producers are Chris Roberts and Barrie Osbourne. The Weinstein Company will handle distribution in the United States and Wild Bunch is handling international sales.

    Outlander begins when a space craft crashes into the majestic fjords of ancient Norway and into the time of the Vikings. From the wreckage emerge two bitter enemies: a soldier from another world – Kainan – and a bloodthirsty creature known as the Moorwen. Man and monster both seeking revenge for violence committed against them. As the Moorwen ravages the Viking world, killing everything in its path, Kainan forms an unlikely alliance with the primitive but fierce warriors. Combining his advanced technology with ancient Iron Age weapons, the hero leads a desperate attempt to kill the monster - before it destroys them all.

    The Moorwen has been designed by famed monster/creature creator Patrick Tatopoulos (Silent Hill, I, Robot, Godzilla, Independence Day). In addition, the film's conceptual art and design was done by the team of conceptual artists (Iain McCaig and Ninth Ray) behind the "Star Wars" trilogy.

    Rounding out the creative team are Cinematographer Pierre Gill (The Covenant) and Production Designer David Hackl (Skinwalkers, "Saw" II & III) and Costume Designer Debra Hanson (Beowulf & Grendel). Post-production will be handled by Toronto-based firm, Spin.

    Executive Producers are John Schimmel, Don Carmody Christopher Eberts, Kia Jam, Don Carmody, Karen Loop, Dirk Blackman and Andy Grosch.

    Filming continues through January 5, 2007 in Halifax and Newfoundland, Canada.

    So sad to see Jim Caviezel's career after "The Passion". It's only reali highlight was his turn as the Timothy McVeigh-esque terrorist in "Deja Vu".

    That poster looks like it could be a poster for a new He-man movie..lol


    Anyway...I think this movie looks totally awesome and original. As I was watching it, I was thinking they should have done a new Predator movie like this...or well.

    Outlander played at the Locarno Film Festival and this HR reviewer liked it a lot. Still no release date.
