Downsizing Alexander Payne Christoph Waltz Hong Chau Matt Damon Banner

The word from Variety is that Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau (INHERENT VICE, HBO's Treme) have landed roles in Alexander Payne's DOWNSIZING, joining the previously cast Matt Damon, Reese Witherspoon, Alec Baldwin, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Sudeikis. Talk about a loaded cast!

Payne's new movie is pretty out there compared to his previous directorial efforts. The satirical sci-fi dramedy will tell the tale of "an Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces people to a tiny fraction of their size before moving to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world." Payne co-wrote DOWNSIZING with his SIDEWAYS co-scribe Jim Taylor, and filming is scheduled to begin this spring for a late 2017 release.

Waltz can be seen next on the big screen in David Yates' THE LEGEND OF TARZAN on July 1, 2016, while Chau is currently filming for the upcoming HBO series Big Little Lies. As for Payne, the director will more than likely be moving on to a movie adaptation of Karl Ove Knausgaard's 2015 two-part New York Times Magazine travel essay "My Saga" once he finishes production on DOWNSIZING.

Nebraska was the best movie of 2013

I love so much Alexander Payne, each movie of his reminds me my road trips through America. And in his movies, I feel the goodness of the people I met during my trips in this wonderful country...
Glad to see he goes out of his comfort zone and will explore sort of science fiction !
About Schmidt, Sideways and Nebraska are movies I can watch over and over again...
