Ellen Page’s ‘Queen and Country’ Draws Director (EXCLUSIVE)

British director Craig Viveiros has come on board to helm Ellen Page in spy thriller “Queen & Country” for Chernin Entertainment at Fox.

The project, based on the Oni Press comic book series “Queen and Country” by Greg Rucka, centers on a British agent Tara Chace going on the run from her own people as she tries to bring down a terrorist on English soil.

Variety reported in September that Page was attached.

Peter Chernin is producing through his Chernin Entertainment banner, along with Jenno Topping. John Rogers is penning the script.

Viveiros began his directing career making shorts and commercials and helmed the short film “Back To Back.” He also produced, wrote and directed his debut feature film “Ghosted” starring Art Malik, John Lynch and Martin Compston.

Viveiros then moved to Haiti to work as a volunteer at the country’s film institute and returned to England to make “The Liability,” starring Tim Roth, Peter Mullan and Jack O’Connell.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Fox and Ellen in the task of bringing Tara Chace and ‘Queen & Country’ to life on the big screen,” Viveiros said. “The echoes of excitement in creating an exciting, unique bold addition the spy genre are held firm by Greg’s solid, riveting source material.”

Page will next be seen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

Viveiros is repped by WME, United Agents and Felker Toczek Suddleson.
