Outlander Series 4 readies for prep
Active pre-production gets underway next week on the fourth series of Outlander, the historical fantasy drama adapted from the books by Diana Gabaldon.
The Starz series is made by Left Bank Pictures and Sony Pictures Television and films out of a converted warehouse space in Cumbernauld, Scotland.
Developed by Ronald D Moore, production on the large-scale adaptation has highlighted Scotland’s need for a purpose-built studio, which is now looking likely to proceed as Pentland Studios’ application was recently approved for planning permission in principle, with the Scottish government also under pressure to provide a publicly-funded facility.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for details on Outlander Series 4 including names of the producer, production designer, production manager, location manager and production co-ordinator and the anitcipated start date.
It is one of more than 100 projects in pre-production on the site, which includes high-profile drama Melrose starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Disney’s feature Christopher Robin directed by Marc Forster.
