Emily Blunt joins Matt Damon in 'Bureau'

Sci-fi love story based on a Philip K. Dick short story

Emily Blunt will star opposite Matt Damon in "The Adjustment Bureau," a sci-fi love story George Nolfi is directing Universal and Media Rights Capital.

The story, which Nolfi adapted from a Philip K. Dick short story, follows a congressman (Damon), on the rise in politics, who meets a beautiful ballet dancer only to discover strange circumstances keep them apart.

Blunt is playing the dancer.

Nolfi is producing with Chris Moore, Michael Hackett and Bill Carraro.

Blunt, repped by CAA, did "The Wolf Man" for Universal. The movie is being released Nov. 6. She is shooting Fox's "Gulliver's Travels" with Jack Black in the U.K.
