'Adjustment Bureau' Director Takes New Sci-Fi from 'Last Stand' Writer

George Nolfi

After being at the helm of the underrated sci-fi film The Adjustment Bureau, director George Nolfi is teaming with the writer behind Arnold Schwarzenegger's big screen comeback The Last Stand for a new sci-fi endeavor. Heat Vision reports Nolfi will direct a currently untitled project from Andrew Knauer, but the plot is currently being kept under wraps. As of now, the plan is for Nolfi to co-write the script with Knauer as well as produce. In case you're wondering how this pairing came together, Nolfi actually did some rewrites on The Last Stand, but was impressed enough with the first draft that he wanted to collaborate.

In a weird game of six degrees, Michael Hackett is also producing the film. Hackett produced Paycheck, which was based on a Philip K. Dick's short story, the author who wrote the short story on which The Adjustment Bureau was based. Nolfi had quite an impressive feature debut with The Adjustment Bureau, and I'm excited to see what he can do with a script from Knauer. Don't let this past weekend's box office fool you, because Schwarzenegger's return is big, fun and worth checking out in theaters, and it all started with a spec script from Knauer. Here's hoping he can make a solid new sci-fi film with Nolfi as well.

You must have seen a different cut of The Adjustment Bureau than the rest of us.

I don't recall anything especially wrong with it, at least not in the directing. I never read the story, but even if it deviated from it drastically, that wouldn't make it a bad film.

Or ya know a different opinion, personally I liked the adjustment bureau. It was nothing groundbreaking but it was somewhat original and visually it was amazing.
