Paramount Nabs Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing”

Paramount Pictures has done a deal to produce and distribute Alexander Payne’s next film “Downsizing,” their third teaming after “Election” and “Nebraska”.

Matt Damon and Reese Witherspoon star in the story of an Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces people to a tiny fraction of their size.

He then moves to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world.

Payne and Mark Johnson will produce the film with shooting to begin in the spring ahead of a Q4 2017 release.
