Universal Sets Up The Adjustment Bureau


Universal Pictures is finalizing a deal with Media Rights Capital for Matt Damon-starrer The Adjustment Bureau, a contemporary love story with sci-fi overtones that was written and will be directed by George Nolfi.

Variety says Nolfi will produce with Chris Moore and Michael Hackett. Production will begin in September.

Nolfi, who wrote The Bourne Ultimatum, is also writing the next Jason Bourne film for Damon and director Paul Greengrass.

In The Adjustment Bureau, Damon will play David Norris, a charismatic congressman who seems destined for national political stardom. He meets a beautiful ballet dancer named Elise Sellas, only to find strange circumstances keeping their sparks from catching fire. Norris discovers forces are at work to keep them apart, and he peels the layers to find out why. The action takes place all over Manhattan.
