Greg Rucka
's Eisner Award Winning Queen and Country comic is one step closer to getting a cinematic adaptation at 20th Century Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Ellen Page (X-Men: The Last Stand, Super, Inception) is in negotiations to star as British Special Operations Section operative Tara Chace in what could become a series of espionage films.

Running for 32 issues from 2001-2007 at Oni Press, the initial Q&C comic book run (and its spinoffs) saw Rucka collaborate with many of today's most acclaimed illustrators including Steve Rolston, Brian Hurtt, Bryan Lee O'Malley, Christine Norrie, Leandro Fernandez, Jason Shawn Alexander, Carla Speed McNeil, Mike Hawthorne, Mike Norton and Chris Samnee.

THR reports that Peter Chernin (Oblivion, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Jenno Topping (Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle) are producing, with Ryan Condal -- known for writing the unused The Sixth Gun pilot for NBC -- writing the current version of the script.
