X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Ellen Page is looking to add another comic book adaptation to her filmography.
The Inception and Juno actress is in negotiations to star in 20th Century Fox's Queen & Country, based on the Greg Rucka graphic novel of the same name. The Hollywood Reporter says the project "tells of a British Special Operations Sections operative named Tara Chace whose identity is compromised after she conducts an assassination."
Here's the rundown on the comic straight from Rucka's official site: "An espionage drama, and ongoing series, set in the fictional British Secret Intelligence Service, focusing on a squad of three Special Operations Officers, codenamed 'Minders', and in particular, focusing on the life of Minder Two (later to become Minder One), a woman named Tara Chace. Queen & Country: Operation Broken Ground won the 2002 Eisner Award for Best New Series. Queen & Country has grown into something of a cottage industry, with comics and novels (A Gentleman’s Game and Private Wars). In addition to the regular title, three associated mini-series have been written—Declassified I, Declassified II, and Declassified III (with Declassified III written by the incredibly talented Antony Johnston)."
A Queen & Country movie has been in development for a decade. The current draft of the script is by Ryan Condal.
