Ridley Scott signs up to direct adaptation of graphic novel Queen And Country
Ridley Scott has signed up to direct an adaptation of graphic novel Queen And Country.
According to The Wrap, Scott has agreed to work with frequent collaborators 20th Century Fox on putting together an adaptation of Greg Rucka's series, which ran for 32 issues between 2001 and 2007.
The series is set in the fictional British Secret Intelligence Service and follows an operative named Tara Chace, a top British intelligence agent who is used as bait to draw out an international terrorist after an attack in London.
The project has been in development for almost a decade now, with Juno star Ellen Page at one time attached. There is currently no star onboard.
Scott, whose latest film All The Money In The World hits DVD shelves in May, was last reported as being in talks with Disney about delivering a new take on The Merlin Saga.
The project looks set to team Scott up with Philippa Boyens, who helped Peter Jackson pen The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit adaptations, for this new project. But it, as yet, remains unconfirmed.
