Reese Witherspoon Joins Matt Damon for DOWNSIZING

Film reunites actress with her ‘Election’ helmer…

Reese Witherspoon (‘The Good Lie,’ ‘Devil’s Knot,’ ‘Mud’) will take the female lead opposite Matt Damon in the high concept satirical sci-fi ‘Downsizing,’ according to Deadline.

To be directed by Alexander Payne, from a script he co-wrote with Jim Taylor, the film is a social satire in which a man realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.

Payne and Witherspoon previously worked together on ‘Election’ back in 1999.

Witherspoon will next be seen starring in the Jean-Marc Vallée-directed ‘Wild’ when it opens in Irish cinemas January 16th, followed by Paul Thomas Anderson’s part surf noir, part psychedelic romp ‘Inherent Vice’ on January 30th.
