709AD, a space craft treaks across the night sky and crash lands in a Norwegian fjord. From its wreckage emerge, Kainan (JIM CAVIEZEL) a soldier from a far away planet and a deadly alien stowaway, the Moorwen. Before he has a chance to track down the Moorwen, Kainan is captured by viking warrior, Wulfric (JACK HUSTON) and held prisoner in the local village led by King Rothgar (JOHN HURT).
Grudgingly accepted into the clan after saving Rothgars life, Kainan confides in Rothgars fiercely beautiful daughter, Freya (SOPHIA MYLES), about his past.
As the Moorwen wreaks terror and destruction on neighbouring villages, the threat of conflict between the clans escalates and Kainan is called upon to kill the creature. Aware of their preys strength, Kainan and Wulfric fuse his advanced alien technology with the Vikings Iron Age weaponry. Joining forces with the bloodthirsty Gunnar (RON PERLMAN), they lead one last mission to seek out and slay the Moorwen.
In the face of the Vikings destruction, the tale of Kainan becomes legend. OUTLANDER is directed by Howard McCain and co-written with Dirk Blackman, both of whom are currently scripting Brett Ratners CONAN. The film was produced by Chris Roberts (LORD OF WAR, LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN) and Barrie M. Osborne (LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, THE MATRIX).
