Wiig Replaces Witherspoon On Payne’s Next

Kristen Wiig is set to replace Reese Witherspoon in Alexander Payne’s next film “Downsizing” for Paramount Pictures.

Witherspoon has had to withdraw over a scheduling conflict, with Payne quickly locking in the “Bridesmaids” and “Ghostbusters” star to join Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau in the film.

Damon plays an Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces people to a tiny fraction of their size and who moves to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world.

Payne is producing with Mark Johnson and shooting begins this Spring.
