British director Ridley Scott (Aliens, Blade Runner) is set to direct the live adaptation of Queen & Country, Yahoo confirmed.
The comic book, written by Greg Rucka under Oni Press, centers on British spy Tara Chace, an operative of the Special Operations Section of SIS (Mi6) known as “the Minders.” Chace begins a dangerous journey to protect field operatives, all while dealing with the bureaucracy and politics that comes with her job.
Last month, it was reported that Scott was set to head the project, but now he confirmed himself that he’s working hard to bring the comic to life.
“Frequently in these things, I know I shouldn’t say because I’m gonna get misquoted here, but comic strip things are certainly lacking in making sense, or dialogue, but this one has really been very well adapted.”
