George Nolfi’s upcoming “The Adjustment Bureau” has added another cast member with “The Hurt Locker” star Anthony Mackie joining Matt Damon and Emily Blunt in the sci-fi thriller. Adapted from a Philip K. Dick short-story, “Bureau” centers on a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by the arrival of a mysterious ballerina in his life. It is common sense to avoid mysterious ballerinas.
Mackie is a great addition to this cast and when you consider that Nolfi is writing and directing (Nolfi wrote “The Bourne Ultimatum”, one of the best action films of the last decade), things are really coming together for a chance at the first good Philip K. Dick adaptation since “Minority Report” (or “Total Recall” if you’re being less charitable). [Variety]
