The Adjustment Bureau – First look at Damon and Blunt in Philip K Dick film

Posted by LiveFor on April 11, 2010

Been a while since I have heard anything about the adaption of Philip K Dick’s shot story, The Adjustment Team. Now we have a pic of Matt Damon and Emily Blunt looking at stuff.

Do we control our destiny, or do unseen forces manipulate us? Matt Damon stars in the thriller The Adjustment Bureau as a man who glimpses the future Fate has planned for him and realizes he wants something else. To get it, he must pursue the only woman he’s ever loved across, under and through the streets of modern-day New York.

On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)–a woman like none he’s ever known. But just as he realizes he’s falling for her, mysterious men conspire to keep the two apart.

David learns he is up against the agents of Fate itself–the men of The Adjustment Bureau–who will do everything in their considerable power to prevent David and Elise from being together. In the face of overwhelming odds, he must either let her go and accept a predetermined path…or risk everything to defy Fate and be with her.

The Adjustment Bureau is written for the screen and directed by George Nolfi (writer of Ocean’s Twelve, co-writer of The Bourne Ultimatum). It is based on a short story by Philip K. Dick (”Total Recall,” “Minority Report” and “Blade Runner”).

Not read the short story, but Dick is always good (oh behave!).

The film is directed by George Nolfi. It also stars Anthony Mackie, John Slattery, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Michael Kelly and Terence Stamp.

Due out on 30th July 2010.

Matt Damon in sci-fi film, The Adjustment Bureau. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg in cop comedy, B Team

Posted by LiveFor on February 25, 2009

Variety reports that studios that are trying to fill 2010 release slates are weighing spec packages that would give them either an Adam McKay-directed action comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, or a drama that will reunite Matt Damon with his The Bourne Ultimatum scribe George Nolfi.

Damon is at the center of The Adjustment Bureau, a contemporary science fiction love story that was shopped to studios by Media Rights Capital.

Nolfi wrote a script that is loosely based on a Philip K. Dick short story, and he will make his directing debut on the film, which will begin production by late summer.

Nolfi scripted the Damon-starrer Ocean’s Twelve, but they developed a closer relationship when he scripted The Bourne Ultimatum. He is also writing the fourth installment of the Bourne franchise for Universal.

Separately, several studios were bidding Tuesday on B Team, a McKay-directed action comedy that casts Ferrell and Wahlberg as cops, with Chris Henchy writing the script.

Henchy co-wrote the upcoming Ferrell-starrer Land of the Lost, and he is co-executive producer of Entourage, the HBO show on which Wahlberg is executive producer.

Even though B Team and The Adjustment Bureau come with pricey packages — buyers essentially commit to make the movies — both pictures are expected to have studio homes before the week is over.
