Universal Picks Up High Concept Sci-Fi Action Project from THE ADJUSTMENT BUREAU Director George Nolfi

Universal picked up a sci-fi action script that The Adjustment Bureau director George Nolfi will co-wrote with Andrew Knauer.  Nolfi and Knauer met while working on The Last Stand, Knauer’s spec script that lured Arnold Schwarzenegger back to movies.  Nolfi was hired to rewrite The Last Stand, and was impressed enough to recruit Knauer to collaborate on the “high concept” sci-fi actioner.  Details beyond that description are unfortunately scarce, but THR confirms Nolfi is looking to direct and produce alongside Michael Hackett (Paycheck).

I was really impressed with The Adjustment Bureau, especially since it was Nolfi’s directorial debut after a decade as a writer on the likes of Ocean’s Twelve and The Bourne Ultimatum.  I am excited to see what Nolfi has to offer going forward.  He has several chances to impress me lined up, including the Facebook thriller XOXO (produced by Darren Aronofsky) and the Cuban missile crisis drama One Minute to Midnight.
