Deadline reports that Matt Damon will star in Alexander Payne’s next movie. Payne, who will direct, co-wrote the script with Sideways and About Schmidt collaborator Jim Taylor. Entitled Downsizing, it’s described as “A social satire in which a guy realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.” Unfortunately, it’s not about a guy who gets fired from a McDonald’s every day for a month.
