Ellen Page Will Serve Queen and Country

Queen and Country Comic Book CoverThe X-Men’s Kitty Pryde is branching out into the spy game. “Juno” and “X-Men” actress Ellen Page is currently in talks to front Fox’s “Queen and Country”.

The film will be based on the comic book by Greg Rucka, and will star Page as “a British SOS operative named Tara Chace whose identity is compromised after she carries out an assassination.”

“Queen and Country”, which wouldn’t put Page in superhero tights despite the film’s comic book origins, was originally set up at Fox over 4 years ago. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping will produce the film, with the current draft of the script from Ryan Condal.

Besides Page, there are no directors or any other castmembers. Then again, after four years of development, I guess finally getting an actress interested is a pretty big deal.

Apparently this is a Hit-Girl type role (I’m guessing, anyway), with the little heroine kicking big dudes’ asses, since Page is kinda on the tiny side at 5’1″.

Page will next be seen in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, where she will reprise dimensional transporter Kitty Pryde aka Shadowcat.
