Emily Blunt boards ‘Bureau’

Actress joins Matt Damon in sci fi thriller

Emily Blunt has landed the female lead in “Adjustment Bureau,” joining Matt Damon in the George Nolfi-directed science-fiction thriller adapted from Philip K. Dick’s short story.

Damon will play a smooth-talking congressman whose political future is thrown in doubt by uncontrollable events and the arrival in his life of a mysterious ballerina, played by Blunt.

Nolfi wrote the script and is producing with Chris Moore, Michael Hackett and Bill Carraro. Production begins in mid-September in Gotham. Universal acquired the film in an auction held by Media Rights Capital, the producer-financier behind “Bruno.”

Blunt recently completed “The Wolfman” alongside Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. She also stars in “The Young Victoria,” “Wild Target” and “Gulliver’s Travels.”

She’s repped by CAA and London-based Ken McReddie Associates.
