Writer/Director On Working With Matt Damon, The Aborted 'Bourne 4' Script He Wrote & MoreWriter-director George Nolfi has seen quite a bit of the Hollywood machine up close. He's been responsible for scripts for films like "Timeline" and "The Sentinel." His spec script "Honor Amongst Thieves" was made near-unrecognizable as it was rewritten into "Ocean's Twelve." And recently, he showed up as an on-set writer for the tumultuous "The Bourne Ultimatum" shoot, working on crafting a storyline for a megabudgeted action film that didn't yet have one.

With "The Adjustment Bureau" hitting theaters next week, we sat down to talk to first-time director (and writer) George Nolfi just very recently. Nolfi, who wrote "The Sentinel" and the rather gonzo, "Ocean's Twelve," endeared himself to Universal executives by working on the script for the "Bourne Ultimatum" movie, but was also contracted to write a fourth film featuring Matt Damon's return as Jason Bourne, only for director Paul Greengrass to bail on the project entirely and the studio to eventually opt for "The Bourne Legacy" as the next adventure in that cinematic universe.
