Watch: New Featurette for George Nolfi's 'The Adjustment Bureau'
Ohhh what happened to this flick… It looks good, why is it getting dumped?! Moviefone has debuted a new full featurette for George Nolfi's The Adjustment Bureau, the latest upcoming Philip K. Dick adaptation starring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Terence Stamp, John Slattery and Anthony Mackie. This was supposed to be released last year, but was delayed until March, and we haven't seen anything from it since the first trailer. I just think this has a great sci-fi concept behind it and some sleek filmmaking courtesy of Nolfi, I just hope it's as good as it looks like it could be in the end. You can watch the new feuatrette below!
Watch the new featurette for George Nolfi's The Adjustment Bureau:
An affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by "mysterious forces" keeping the lovers apart.
The Adjustment Bureau is directed by first-time director George Nolfi, who is best known as a screenwriter who wrote the screenplays for Timeline, Ocean's Twelve, The Sentinel, and The Bourne Ultimatum. Nolfi also wrote the script for this film, which is based on the Philip K. Dick short story "Adjustment Team" (you can read more about here). This was supposed to be released this July, but Universal has rescheduled The Adjustment Bureau to hit theaters on March 4th in spring. I am definitely still planning to see this. You?

Alex: I read the script a year ago and most of it was pretty cool. The concept definitely rocked and the characters were very appealing. However, two thoughts I had in mind about filming the script... 1) If not handled right, the concept of some guys in suits and fancy hats controlling your fate can look VERY hokey and silly. Not an easy balance to achieve, especially for a first-time director. 2) The script's ending was kind of a bust, in my view. Too easy and pat for a wrap up, especially after everything that proceeded it. There's a lot of charm followed by a lot of cat and mouse chasing around New York City, but when it's time for the payoff, it whimpered out in the script.

I don't know about everyone else but looks very interesting. It's simple yet very intriguing.

So interested in this. I can't believe she wasn't chosen as Catwoman in Nolan's next Batman. Fucking retarded.

I also want to know what happened to this film. It looks great and from a marketing standpoint, it's easy money in the bank.

again C'mon Alex.....surely you see the connection with" Fringe" and the Observers. I want to see this, but everytime I have seen the trailer, all I can think of is "Fringe."

What doughnut hole did this movie fall into on the way to the cinemaplex? My son caught a prescreen of this last year, maybe earlier. Wasn't bad, lighter in tone than portrayed in the featurette but not deserving of the fate its been handed so far. Weird how some movies get caught up in an eddy.
