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.

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.

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.
