Ellen Page has just returned to comic book territory playing Kitty Pryde once more in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and now she’s got another comic adaptation in the works, as Variety reports that she’s set for 20th Century Fox’s female led sky pic Queen & Country.
Based on Greg Rucka’s comic book, ‘the story follows Tara Chace, a British Intelligence agent who tries to stop an international terrorist plot after her identity is compromised and as her personal demons spiral out of control.’
Fox has apparently been looking for a franchise for Page for a long time and they’re hoping that this is it with Variety suggesting that it ‘could do for Page what the Jason Bourne franchise did to lift Matt Damon’s profile’. It’ll be interesting to see if it does that for her.
John Rogers is writing the script, although it doesn’t appear there’s a director of shooting date set yet.
