Hoeks Top Choice For “Queen and Country”

“Blade Runner 2049” and “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” actress Sylvia Hoeks is reportedly in talks to play the lead role of Tara Chace in Ridley Scott’s planned adaptation of Greg Rucka’s Eisner award-winning spy comic “Queen And Country” at 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment.

Set in the fictional British Secret Intelligence Service, the action follows emotionally detached operative Chace who was raised in the Scottish wilderness, recruited by MI6 and is used as bait to draw out an international terrorist after an attack in London. The series ran for thirty-two issues from 2001 to 2007.

Ellen Page was attached to star at one point but is no longer involved. John Rogers, Ryan Condel, Olivia Milch, and Rucka all worked on the script over the years.
