"Queen and Country" Lands Condal as Draft Writer

Comic book writer Greg Rucka's Oni Press now has a draft writer for its long-languishing film adaptation of Queen and Country, a comic book centering on a female Special Ops field agent who is involved in an assassination of a high-ranking official in Europe and finds herself on the run after that event. Ryan Condal has been tapped as a draft writer on the project, and he's already been gathering a name for himself in comic book and film circles. A film on Hercules, under production by Universal and Spyglass, is also on Condal's list of projects, and his work on last year's Arthurian legend story Galahad certainly had a lot to do with that. Queen and Country is currently under development as an action series at Fox, and movement on the project is expected to continue forward.
