The folks over at Deadline are hearing that Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to the Sonia Purnell book ‘A Woman Of No Importance,’ with plans for a feature adaptation starring Daisy Ridley (‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’).

The book, published in 1893, tells the story 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.

After being 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.

J.J. Abrams’ production banner Bad Robot is on board to produce.
