After seven years of “scratching,” as screenwriter George Nolfi puts it, he finally unearthed the key to his new action-thriller, The Adjustment Bureau. Now, it’s up to audiences to do the same. The film is about a politician who falls hopelessly in love with a ballerina until the agents of fate decide to get in the way. Nolfi is no stranger to action-thrillers, as he’s penned some of the most notable in the genre in the recent years, including The Bourne Ultimatum, The Sentinel, Ocean’s Twelve and Timeline. Script sat down with the writer/director to get some pointers on exactly how many scratches it takes to make a good action-thriller.
