Three actors join 'Bureau'
Daniel Dae Kim, Michael Kelly join MRC/Universal filmDaniel Dae Kim and Michael Kelly have been cast in "The Adjustment Bureau," an MRC project for Universal Pictures written and being directed by George Nolfi. John Slattery also has been cast.
The story, which Nolfi adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, centers on a congressman (Matt Damon), on the rise in politics, who meets a beautiful ballet dancer (Emily Blunt) only to discover that a strange organization is keeping them apart.
Kim (ABC's "Lost") plays a mysterious staffer at the Bureau of Adjustments, and Slattery ("Mad Men") is a high-ranking bureau executive. Kelly is playing Damon's best friend and campaign manager.
The movie shoots this fall in New York.
"Bureau" represents a rare foray into features for Kim. He has made appearances in such films as "Crash" and "Spider-Man 2," though he has kept to the TV side of the business because of "Lost's" tight shooting window and Hawaii shooting location. He is repped by APA and Lighthouse Entertainment.
Kelly, who appears in "Law Abiding Citizen," has the Hugh Grant romantic comedy "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" in the can and appeared in "Defendor," the Woody Harrelson dramedy that sold in Toronto. He is repped by Innovative Artists and Liebman Entertainment.
