Filming will also start for Heughan’s new movie, Bloodshot, which will reportedly happen in South Africa. Meanwhile, Balfe will soon start filming Ford vs. Ferrari(which is still to receive an official name) with Matt Damon.
The cast and crew are onto the season finale filming now, with many night shoots taking place. It’s going to be exciting to find out when the filming wraps and if there are any photos of those final glances for seven months as the cast and crew take time off before filming Outlander Season 5.

Organisers said people from all over the world participated in Scotland’s biggest running festival.
Events included a marathon, half-marathon, 10k and 5k.
Kenyan Joel Kipkemboi Kiptoo took advantage of good running conditions to set a course record in the men’s marathon, finishing in two hours, 13 minutes and 33 seconds.
He beat the previous record set in 2005 by almost two minutes.
American Jeffrey Stein took second place, followed by local favourite Michael Crawley in third.
The women’s race was dominated by Kenyan athlete Caroline Jepchirchir, who led from the front with a time of two hours, 47 minutes and 35 seconds.
Outlander’s Sam Heughan is set to join Vin Diesel in Bloodshot for Sony Pictures. The pic, which marks Diesel’s first starring superhero film, starts production in July with Dave Wilson directing and Neal H. Moritz producing. The film is casting up quickly, with Eiza Gonzalez and Michael Sheen also coming aboard.

Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe – a comic book universe composed of a diverse array of thousands of characters embodying a wide variety of genres, tones and demographic groups and over 81 million comics sold. Valiant’s superheroes are ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods; they are complex characters that reflect contemporary society, politics, and diversity of the modern world.
Wilson is a director at Blur Studios, the VFX factory owned by Tim Miller, who directed the first Deadpool and is reviving the Terminator franchise. Pic re-teams Fast and the Furious‘ Moritz and Diesel. Sony is hoping to launch a franchise here through the Bloodshot comic universe.
The film fits nicely into Heughan’s hiatus before he returns for Outlander, which recently got a two-season pickup from Starz. Heughan next stars with Kate McKinnon and Mila Kunis in The Spy Who Dumped Me, which Lionsgate releases August 3.

Sam Heughan has been teasing a number of announcements as of late, and one of them included the development of his own whisky. He teased it briefly in an interview this week on This Morning, and earlier today he released a little more news in the form of a name: Great Glen Company.
Outlander news from Private Outlander tours
In the post below via his official Twitter, you can see the announcement of the name alongside the notice that “Great Glen is Coming.” The development of a whisky brand is certainly not something that happens overnight, so obviously this has been planned out for a while. Also, what better time to make said announcement than World Whisky Day? It’s a great way to get some attention out there on the brand before the launch, whenever that may be.
With a name like Great Glen, it’s pretty clear that the brand is meant to be a celebration of Scotland. The Great Glen is a famous rift valley / fault line that runs through much of Scotland, and there is also a famous pathway entitled the Great Glen Way that goes along with it. Developing a whisky that reflects Scotland is clearly important, and this also helps to tie it in more with Outlanderand the show’s devoted fans. Without ever mentioning or even referencing the show, the idea invokes a similar reaction. After all, Outlander fans would be a key marketing base for the product.
Heughan is not the first television star to be involved in a line of specialty beverages / spirits. Here in North America Arrow star Stephen Amell is heavily involved in Nocking Point, which is primarily a winery but also markets a number of other products. Doing this sort of thing is a way to further expand your business portfolio, while also exploring something else you have a passion for. Sam’s love of whisky is pretty well-documented at this point so this feels like the perfect endeavor for him to take on. The thing that continues to impress us is how he can juggle this with the show, charity work, and other ventures — it’s the end result of having focus and a good team around you.
He explains his love of the great outdoors to Cameron McNeish for Take a Hike on BBC Two Scotland.
The actor, who grew up in Dumfries and Galloway, said it was a passion which had been with him as long as he could remember.
He said that returning to Scotland to film Outlander had rekindled his desire to enjoy its countryside.
“I was born and raised in a place called New Galloway, on the grounds of a derelict castle,” he said.
“It was a great childhood.
“I know I am very fortunate but I got to be outdoors all the time with my imagination and play a lot out there – I think that’s probably where my love of acting came from.
“The whole area was kind of my play park where there were really no boundaries and I think that discovery and excitement as a kid definitely has transferred into why I like coming to remote places.”
The return to his homeland for his acting career took him back to those memories.
Where did Sam Heughan grow up?
New Galloway lies on the west side of the valley of the Water of Ken a mile north of the end of Loch Ken in Dumfries and Galloway.
It is largely built around a single north-south High Street that climbs up through town and has a location on the edge of the Galloway Forest Park that gives it a “wonderful air of seclusion”.
The town as seen today dates back to planned development by Viscount Kenmure in the early 1600s, followed by the granting of burgh status in 1630.

“I moved back to Scotland to shoot Outlander and go to all these amazing locations all over Scotland and it made me fall in love with the country that I knew from my childhood,” he said.
His first climbing experience as an adult was not such a success when he slipped and fell on Ben Lomond.
However, he said that was part of the excitement for him
“I think the challenge of climbing is certainly a part of why I do it,” he said.
“It’s like you’re an adventurer, you’re maybe the first person to ever be here and that’s what I love about the mountains.
“You can get to them quite easily and before you know it you feel like you’re the first man to ever climb here.
“To me, it’s something inside you, something inside your bones, it’s a real connection to the land.” Take A Hike – A History of Scottish Walking is on BBC Two Scotland on 16 May at 19:00.
Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are a team on and off the screen.
The “Outlander” actor shared a photo from the Stirling Scottish Marathon in Scotland on Sunday. He captioned the tweet, “Is it too late to go back to bed? Wish us luck!”
Outlander star Sam Heughan joined a star-studded guest list to help launch the Glasgow International festival’s opening party this weekend.
More than 1,200 art lovers, artists and revellers joined the celebrations at SWG3, including Britpop legend Jarvis Cocker and fashion designer Pam Hogg.
Guests were treated to previews of four exhibitions, including jewellery designs by Judy Blame, the legendary artist – known for working with Neneh Cherry and Boy George – who passed away earlier this year.

Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey brought their Dancefloor Meditations for some escapist fun, with party goers taken on a ‘mind-altering journey into musical consciousness’ – all in complete darkness, and with music ranging from iconic dance numbers to Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing.
The Pulp frontman’s appearance in Yorkhill was followed by a quick visit to Mono for Record Store Day on Saturday, as reported on Glasgow Live.

Fans of the hit television series Outlanderhelped to push tourist numbers at Scotland’s historic castles past the five million mark for the first time last year. Our Outlander set locations tourfeatures visits to Doune Castle , Blackness Castle and Linlithgow palace
Historic Environment Scotland (HES) said that people had come from across the world to see sites associated with the time-travel fantasy starring Sam Heughan and Caitriona BalfeSam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe. It said that the “Outlander effect” had led to a 27 per cent increase in tourists from the US and a 19 per cent increase in those coming from France compared with the previous year.
Visitor numbers to Doune Castle, the location for the fictional Castle Leoch, are up by 227 per cent since 2013, when Outlander was first screened. The 15th-century Blackness Castle in West Lothian, the setting for the Tv series has seen a huge rise in visitor numbers .
Stephen Duncan, Director of Commercial and Tourism at HES, said: “Our record breaking visitor figures, including across all of our top ten sites, are a tremendous achievement for Scotland’s heritage tourism sector, reflecting the continued interest shown by tourists and home-grown visitors to learn more about our rich Scottish heritage.
“The exchange rate, as well as strong airport numbers, have both contributed to the growing figures.
“This rise in visitor numbers at our staffed sites has also been complemented by visitor growth at our unstaffed free access properties, bringing the overall total to an estimated 12 million.”
The top 10 most-visited HES attractions all individually celebrated record-breaking years, with over 2 million people passing over Edinburgh Castle’s drawbridge, an increase of nearly 300,000 visitors in comparison to the previous year.
Historians who maintain the Culloden Battlefield in Scotland are reportedly blaming fans of the novels and TV series for trampling the area around the Clan Fraser memorial .
The property manager of Culloden says more than 180,000 people visited the battlefield last year, up 28 percent from 2016. Some even left behind little cutouts of Sam Heughan, who plays Jamie Fraser on the Starz drama.

The Battle of Culloden was teased at the end of season 2 and depicted in the premiere episode of season 3 on Outlander. It was a brief re-creation of the actual confrontation that took place on April 16, 1745 between British troops and the Jacobite forces of Bonnie Prince Charlie. In the series, it’s where Jamie finally kills Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies).
“Some of the things I have seen at Culloden have really got my back up,” Alasdair MacNeill of the Circle of Gentlemen, a Jacobite appreciation society, tells the Daily Record. “A lot the visitors are American and seem to think they are on a film set rather than a war grave. They maybe don’t know the history. But how would they feel if I walked my dog across Gettysburg?”
The National Trust for Scotland is reportedly hoping to reseed the area around the monument. In the meantime, Outlander series author Diana Gabaldon weighed in on the phenomenon with a not-so-subtle message to fans to tread lightly on such hallowed ground.
Katey Boal and her team do a wonderful job in conserving, curating and presenting this precious part of Scotland’s heritage, and I’m sure that all Outlander fans are more than grateful and appreciative of their efforts, and I am sure they will make every effort to support them. https://twitter.com/ScotlandNow/status/985868066021142528 …
