Philip K. Dick's Adjustment Bureau Adds Lost, Mad Men Stars

Illustration for article titled Philip K. Dicks Adjustment Bureau Adds Lost, Mad Men Stars

We'd lost interest in the Matt Damon/Emily Blunt vehicle Adjustment Bureau because it transformed a Philip K. Dick tale into a "love story." But the casting of Daniel Dae Kim and John Slattery, plus new details, adjusted our attitudes.

Kim, best known for playing Jin on Lost (as well as a slimy lawyer on Angel), will play a "mysterious staffer" at the Bureau of Adjustments, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (And if the movie is anything like the Dick story it's based on, this Bureau actually revises a fabricated reality around people.) And Mad Men's Slattery plays a high-ranking Bureau executive.

And there's a new plot synopsis: Damon plays a congressman who's on the rise in politics. Michael Kelly (Law Abiding Citizen) plays Damon's campaign manager and best friend. Damon falls in love with a ballet dancer (Blunt), but discovers a strange organization is keeping them apart. [THR]

Sounds interesting. Does Halcyon have anything to do with the Phillip K. Dick story rights? Another post mentioned something along those lines earlier this week that was never made clear.
