At this point, “anticipating,” might be going too far. I like Alexander Payne as much as the next guy, and if you put Matt Damon, Neil Patrick Harris, and Kristen Wiig in a movie, I’m on board, but Downsizing actually looks a little nuts.
There aren’t a lot of details on this one yet (it isn’t out until Christmas), but Matt Damon plays a guy who decides to shrink himself because he thinks it will mean a better life. Where that craziness goes is probably as easy to figure out as the plot of Sideways based on nothing beyond it being about two guys who like wine.
Still, Payne is usually good for a think, and this has an absolutely bonkers cast.
