Having already suited back up as a mutant in the upcoming Fox pic “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” Ellen Page is now ready to step into spy attire.

The “Juno” thesp is in negotiations to star in the spy action pic “Queen & Country” for Fox.

Based on the comic book by Greg Rucka, the story follows Tara Chace, a British Intelligence agent who tries to stop an international terrorist plot after her identity is compromised and as her personal demons spiral out of control.

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

Sources tell Variety that Fox had long wanted give Page a franchise after working with the young actress in various Fox and Fox Searchlight projects. This property gives Page that and could do for Page what the Jason Bourne franchise did to lift Matt Damon’s profile.

This latest project fills a slate that is continuing to keep Page busy through the next year. She is also attached to star and produce “Freeheld,” the drama based on the documentary of domestic partners Stacie Andree and Laurel Hester who struggled to secure pension benefits after Hester was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Page will also appear in the motion capture video game “Beyond” that bows Oct. 8 for the Sony PlayStation console.

Page can currently be seen in the Lynn Shelton pic “Touchy Feely” with Scoot McNairy and Rosemarie DeWitt and was also recently seen in the Fox Searchlight pic, “The East.” She is repped by WME, Vie Entertainment and Barnes Morris Klein Mark & Yorn.

Hi everyone :) . Here's some news about the project, reporting that the script is currently under rewriting:

http://variety.com/2014/film/news/olivi ... 201151089/

Of all ms. Page's projects this is definitely the one I'm looking forward to the most... The source material is really impressive and I hope the director choosen will do a good job, in spite he's not a "big" name of the industry (or maybe exactly because of that ;-)). I've seen his last "The Liability" (with Tim Roth and Peter Mullan), a pretty good gangster movie with a nice British touch, so I'm quite optimist.
