Fox Hires Olivia Milch To Re-Write QUEEN & COUNTRY Starring Ellen Page

Justin Kroll of Variety reports, 20th Century Fox has hired screenwriter Olivia Milch to re-write the Queen & Country screenplay. The film will be based on Greg Rucka's Eisner award-winning graphic novel and star Ellen Page ("X-Men: Days of Future Past").

According to Variety, 20th Century Fox has brought Olivia Milch on board to rewrite the script for Queen & Country. She's taking over writing duties for John Rogers, who penned the original script. The movie will be an adaptation of Greg Rucka's graphic novel of the same name. It was published by Oni Press and won the prestigious the 2002 "Best New Series" Eisner Award. Ellen Page ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") will star as 'Tara Chace' in the spy-thriller. Her character is described as a tough-as-nails, female version of Jason Bourne.
Queen & Country - 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). - gregrucka.com
