J.J. Abrams Brings In Anna Foerster To Direct ‘Lou’
  |  @   |  

There has been growing frustration over the lack of quality female directors not being given the chance to direct tentpole films. There may be a few exceptions, but when Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy says things like “We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars, they’re set up for success. They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience,” it is easy to see why the call for female directors to helm blockbuster films is getting louder.

So rather than just be vocal during the campaign or wait around to do something, J.J. Abrams, and his Bad Robot production company are bringing in Outlander director Anna Foerster to helm a drama called Lou. Find out more about this film below.

It is the season 1 finale of Outlander, the epic tale of Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe) and James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan). Outlander, based on the Diana Galbadon series, really translated from the page to the screen, in ways that went beyond any expectations.

Sing me a song of a lass that is gone,
Say, could that lass be I
Merry of soul she sailed on a day
Over the sea to Skye

Starz was really smart in grabbing this series. There’s tons more material, and these two leads are perfect. Do not continue if you have not watched the finale. There are spoilers!

On last week’s Outlander, Jenny (Laura Donnelly) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) set out to rescue Jaime (Sam Heughan). They find the Redcoat camp, but no Jaime! Murtagh (Duncan Lacroix) comes along and tags out Jenny. She has GOT to get back to her baby (see last week’s breast milk expression Emmy wish). I was kinda pissed that nobody even attempted to rescue MacQuarrie (Douglas Henshall). He ended up being an all right guy. Murtagh and Claire started a traveling act, dancing and singing to ferret out Jaime. Even though a gypsy act stole their song, they did get word. That word ended up being Dougal (Graham McTavish), who only agreed to help if Claire agreed to marry him upon failure. Claire, to everybody’s surprise, agreed.
