Outlander news from Outlander tours Edinburgh
Sam Heughan is steadily building his film career outside of Outlander . His other films include Red Notice and Bloodshot . Season six of Outlander has just wrapped but fans won’t be able to see the new season until early next year . Rumours are it will be a short season of just six episodes due to Covid filming restrictions , but season seven will have 10 episodes .
The feature — which HanWay films will be introducing to buyers at the upcoming Cannes Virtual Market, with UTA handling U.S. — is inspired by the novelPaths of Gloryby bestselling English author Jeffrey Archer, and is set in 1921, when Mount Everest remained the very last great unconquered challenge on earth.
Many have sacrificed their sanity and often their lives in the attempt to reach its fabled summit. Mallory (McGregor) was picked by the arrogant Arthur Hinks (Strong) of the Royal Geographic Society to scale the impossible. Following WWI, the fading British empire is desperate for a restorative victory, but for Mallory and his rival, the eccentric Aussie George Finch (Heughan), the challenge of Everest has nothing to do with patriotism, instead it is a singular test of self.
Climbing without oxygen, to heights not even planes can reach, Mallory‘s successive attempts to make the summit sees a challenge become an all-consuming obsession. It leads him to abandon his beloved wife and three children for months on end, give up his job, and push his body to the limits of human endurance.
