Caviezel Talks Outlander
Jim Caviezel, who stars in the upcoming SF action-adventure movie Outlander, dropped his usual reserve and told SCI FI Wire that he's excited to be part of the epic tale. "It's going to be big," Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ) said in an interview. "Outlander is going to be big."
Caviezel is now in Canada shooting the film, which is directed by Howard McCain and tells the story of a being from another galaxy who crash-lands on Earth during the time of the Vikings. "It's kind of like Braveheart and Highlander combined," Caviezel said. "Somewhat, and really not, and much bigger."
Outlander, which was written by McCain and Dirk Blackman, follows the story of a human-like alien on Earth in 509 A.D. and the monstrous alien creature called a Moorwen that has followed him, threatening to destroy all human life. Caviezel said that he has not yet seen the creature, which will be created by designer Patrick Tatopoulos (I, Robot), but added that it will scary. (Outlander is not related to the Diana Gabaldon book series of the same name.)
