Paramount is putting together somewhat of a “Star Wars” reunion (okay, so that’s a stretch, but it’s good clickbait okay!)
The studio has nabbed the rights to Sonia Purnell’s book “A Woman Of No Importance” and has set Daisy Ridley to star.
J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot is producing the film.
Purnell’s book is the biography of American heiress and super-spy Virginia Hall, who attempted to break into the ranks of the American Foreign Service in the years before World War II. Rejected because of gender and a disability — she lost part of her leg in a hunting accident — Hall worked during the war for the British intelligence unit SOE. She later joined the OSS, the forerunner of the CIA (via Deadline.)
