Great news about Downsizing:

The film, directed by Alexander Payne, will be released by Paramount in December.
Alexander Payne’s Downsizing has been selected to open the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.

The satire, written by Payne and his frequent collaborator Jim Taylor, stars Matt Damon as a man who decides to shrink himself in order to find a better life. The cast also includes Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern and Jason Sudeikis.

The Venice berth is a first for Payne, whose films have played Cannes, Telluride, Toronto and Sundance, but not the Italian fest, where Downsizing’s opening-night slot should position it for high-profile awards-season bid.

Paramount plans to release the film Dec. 22. The studio recently showed off footage from the film at the annual CineEurope international exhibitors convention in Barcelona.

Downsizing gets Reese Witherspoon as co-star. Via Variety

Reese Witherspoon has joined Matt Damon in the social satire “Downsizing,” to be directed by Alexander Payne.

Payne wrote the script with Jim Taylor, his partner in Fox-based Ad Hominem Enterprises. Damon joined the project in November.

The story centers on a man in the near future who realizes that he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself at a time when humans are able to do so to battle over-consumption and the depletion of the Earth’s natural resources.

Payne and Taylor won an Oscar for adapted screenplay for “Sideways.” Payne most recently directed “Nebraska.” Payne and Taylor also wrote the Oscar-nominated script for 1999’s “Election,” which starred Witherspoon.

Witherspoon has been nominated for a SAG award and a Golden Globe for “Wild,” which she also produced. She is repped by CAA and Rick Yorn at LBI.
