Outlander wrapped its filming of Season Three today. Starz released this super cute picture of Sam and Cait on set looking like Jamie and Claire being adorable. Did casting do a fantastic job or what?!
It is looking more and more like a September air date is possible. Let's hope.
Lionsgate is negotiating with Outlander star Sam Heughan for the male lead opposite Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, an Imagine Entertainment comedy that Susanna Fogel will direct from the script she wrote with David Iserson. Brian Grazer is producing. The pic shoots this summer for release on July 6, 2018.
McKinnon and Kunis will play best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her actually was a spy. That’s where Heughan comes in. The Scottish actor has established himself in the role of Jamie Fraser in the Starz series Outlander, and this becomes his first big starring role in a Hollywood feature.
The film is being overseen by Lionsgate’s Peter Kang and Geoff Shaevitz and Imagine’s Erica Huggins and Julie Oh, the latter of whom brought in the project. Heughan is repped by Ruth Young at United Agents, UTA, and attorney Steve Warren.
Some of you might know that Sam is a big fan of Stranger Things. He got to meet Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) at Emerald City Con in NY. #fanboy
And if you haven't watched Stranger Things don't just take Sam's word for it... it's a really great show. Go watching it while we wait for Outlander.
On Wednesday, Outlander took home trophies at the 43rd People's Choice Awards! The awards they won include:
Unfortunately (depending how you look at it), Sam and Cait couldn't be at the PCA's because they were on location filming Outlander (I'm not really upset by that). However, Sam and Cait have a message which Starz posted to Twitter:
Sam Heughan, star of the hit STARZ series Outlander, has been named Scotland President for blood cancer charity Bloodwise.
Sam, who has been fund raising to beat blood cancer since 2011, says he is honoured to be part of the Bloodwise team.
Sam and Cait were both nomicated for Critic Choice Awards. Best Actress for Balfe and Best Actor for Heughan.
