LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Daniel Dae Kim (ABC's "Lost") and John Slattery (AMC's "Mad Men") will join Matt Damon in "The Adjustment Bureau," a sci-fi romance based on a Philip K. Dick short story.

Damon plays a rising congressman who meets a beautiful ballet dancer (Emily Blunt) only to discover that a strange organization is keeping them apart.

Kim plays a mysterious staffer at the Bureau of Adjustments, and Slattery a high-ranking bureau executive. Michael Kelly ("Law Abiding Citizen") has also joined the cast, as Damon's best friend and campaign manager.

The movie shoots this fall in New York. George Nolfi, who wrote the Damon vehicle "The Bourne Ultimatum," is directing the Universal project from his own adaptation.
