Matt Damon is looking for a studio to finance 'The Adjustment Bureau'
Sci-Fi love story would shoot this summer for a 2010 release
What studio will make an "Adjustment" in their 2010 release schedules for a new Matt Damon flick?
According to Variety, Damon and "Bourne Ultimatum" screenwriter George Nolfi have pre-packaged a new contemporary Sci-Fi love story entitled "The Adjustment Bureau." The duo is looking for a movie studio to pick up the project with the intention of shooting this summer for a 2010 release.
Loosely based on a Philip K. Dick short story, the feature will mark the directorial debut for Nolfi. The writer's previous credits include "Ocean's Eleven," which starred Damon, but according to the trade, the two developed a closer relationship on "Ultimatum" which has lead to Nolfi working on the fourth installment of the franchise.
After briefly appearing in "Che: Part Two" or "Guerrilla" (take your pick of titles) in 2008, Damon has four films set for release in 2009 including the long delayed drama "Margaret," the Paul Greengrass potential Oscar thriller "Green Zone," Steven Soderbergh's comedy thriller "The Informant" and Clint Eastwood's "The Human Factor." Like "Adjustment," the fourth "Bourne" picture is expected to begin production this summer for a 2010 release. How those two projects will be scheduled is still unclear.
Now, who will make Damon's day by picking up "Adjustment" is an even bigger question, but the leak to the trade paper is no doubt meant to apply pressure to a number of bidders.
