Emily Blunt will star opposite Matt Damon in “The Adjustment Bureau,” a sci-fi love story.
George Nolfi is directing the Universal Pictures project. The story, which Nolfi adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, follows an on-the-rise congressman (Damon) who meets a beautiful ballet dancer only to discover that strange circumstances keep them apart.
Blunt will play the dancer.
Blunt, whose screen credits include “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Dan in Real Life” and “Charlie Wilson’s War,” will appear later this year in “The Wolf Man,” which is scheduled for a November 6 release. She is shooting “Gulliver’s Travels” with Jack Black in the U.K.
