Matt Damon, Emily Blunt star in sci-fi thriller

Anthony Mackie (“The Hurt Locker”) has been cast in “The Adjustment Bureau,” MRC’s sci-fi thriller for Universal with Matt Damon and Emily Blunt starring, and George Nolfi directing from his own script.

Nolfi also will produce alongside Chris Moore, Michael Hackett and Bill Carraro.

The Adjustment Bureau,” adapted from Philip K. Dick’s short story, centers on a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by the arrival of a mysterious ballerina in his life.

Mackie is appearing in “The Bacchae” in Gotham as part of Shakespeare in the Park. “The Adjustment Bureau” will shoot in New York immediately following the wrap of the play.
