While Wonder Woman and Black Widow await their solo films that may never come, Ellen Page is about to usurp them to star in the first big female-led comic book adaptation in quite some time.
Fox optioned Oni Press comic book series Queen and Country for Page to star in last fall, and now the film has itself a director as well, with Variety reporting British director Craig Viveiros will be taking helming duties.
Ok, so Page’s character Tara Chace has more in common with Jason Bourne than the superpowered heroines of Marvel and DC, but this is still an exciting prospect. Chace is a British secret agent must go on the run and finds herself dodging her own employers as she tries to bring down a terrorist on English soil.
John Rogers is writing the script.
