LOL! That would be awesome! The area of North Carolina where the Ridge is located is not too far from here. It actually looks a lot like the Highlands there, and there is a lot of Scottish ancestry there. They do big Highland games every year. I really hope they film it in that actual location. In reality, I’m sure they’ll film it somewhere totally bizarre. I don’t see them bringing production to the U.S. But, I have the same question for the Revolutionary War era cities in the book too. What could stand in for Boston or Philly? That would be so weird if they didn’t actually film here in the U.S. They better up their budget for some dang good CGI.
I can’t wait to see the South Africa locations standing in for the Jamaica scenes. Those scenes with Geillis were some of the hardest in the book for me to imagine, so I’m looking forward to seeing it brought to life.
