Matt Damon works for 'The Adjustment Bureau'
Will head adaptation of Philip K. Dick sci-fi story
Damon will take the lead for "The Adjustment Bureau," according to Variety. The movie, very loosely based on Philip K. Dick's 1954 story "Adjustment Team," follows Damon's politician character as mysterious circumstances continually prevent him from beginning a love affair with a ballet dancer. The original tale, which as usual for Dick questioned the nature of reality, followed a salesman who discovered the entire world was a social experiment manipulated by mysterious forces.
No word yet on who will play the dancer. Shooting is scheduled to begin once Damon finishes his current project, the rugby movie "The Human Factor."
"Total Recall," the adaptation of another Dick story, is also scheduled to bring his vision (as a remake) to theaters.
