Greg Rucka's "Queen & Country" To Get Film Adaptation
by Sara 'Babs' Lima on
The Oni Press comic book series will be picked up by FOX
Oni Press has joined the ranks of many comic book publishing companies that have allowed their creator owned ideas to make their transition to the big screen! The latest adaptation will be Queen & Country, written by Greg Rucka which consisted of 37 issues launched in March 2001, and ended in August 2007. The series was centered around Tara Chace, a Specials Ops agent for the SIS (British Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI-6). The plot places a heavy focus on the realities and political push and pull that real SIS agents have to face as well the various dangerous missions they are forced to confront. The concept likens her to a female version of James Bond, and the volumes have been translated into various languages.
While I myself am not exactly familiar with the comic book series (for shame!) any plot line that has a female character kicking a lot of butt sounds like a good read to me. The script will be written by Ryan Condel who wrote the script for Galahad last year. The film will more than likely require an actress with a powerful on screen presence that can headline a film. It was previously rumored that Nicole Kidman would take the helm, but it seems those rumors have died out. Who do you think could play the role of Tara Chace? Do you think that FOX could turn this comic book into a successful film?
