Alexander Payne’s Next Film “Downsizing” to Star Matt Damon

(via Deadline)

Going away from the incredibly grounded reality of his last two movies , Alexander Payne is going a tad fantastical with his next movie, “Downsizing”.

Starring Matt Damon, the film will follow a man who thinks life would be better if he shrunk himself.

This idea, which might also lean more comedically than The Descendants and Nebraska, with Payne at the helm and Damon getting top billing seems prime to be another award frontrunner from the maker of perennial award frontrunners.
