The story, with action, romance and sci-fi overtones, sees Matt Damon playing a politician who falls for a ballerina only to find mysterious forces keeping the two apart. That sounds about right when you add that it is loosely based on the work of Philip K. Dick. It doesn’t sound quite right as a star vehicle for Matt Damon though, but what do I know, I’m just a guy who writes the news. Damon is attached to the film, entitled The Adjustment Bureau, which was optioned this week by Universal. It will be created from a spec script by George Nolfi, who previously worked as a writer on Ocean’s Twelve and The Bourne Ultimatum.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the production will have a budget in the $60-$65 million range and will serve as the directorial debut for Nolfi, who is also producing. And beyond that, we don’t have much to go on. Though I am curious to get my hands on this script, as any combination of action, romance and sci-fi (and not to mention ballerinas) is always interesting.
