Matt Damon will reteam with The Bourne Ultimatium scribe George Nolfi for The Adjustment Bureau. Nolfi wrote the film and will direct, with Universal on board to finance and release the film, which is being billed as a contemporary sci-fi love story. Universal is also behind the Bourne franchise, which is one of the most popular political thriller brands in recent years.
Production is scheduled to be underway by September. Damon will play David Norris, a congressman who is on track for national political stardom. He is somewhat derailed by a beautiful ballerina named Elise Sellas and discovers that forces are at work to keep them apart. He toils diligently to figure out why he and Elise can't ignite their spark. The story will take place in Manhattan.
Nolfi is also in the process of writing the script for the fourth film in the Jason Bourne franchise.
