Battlestar Galactica producer Ronald D. Moore has begun shooting his new series Outlander for Starz, an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s novels about a World War II combat nurse who mysteriously finds herself in 18th-century Scotland, married to a brave and chivalrous warrior. But Moore should just wrap production and save Starz millions by handing in this set photo, which the network could run in hourlong blocks every week. After all, it’s unlikely the show can ever measure up to the sense of adventure or romance conjured by Moore’s lustrous, windswept locks appearing in such close proximity to a sword, their tangles containing all the mystery of the Scottish Highlands themselves. This photo has already overthrown Queen Elizabeth and been crowned the new King of Scotland. [via Cinema Blend]
