Downsizing: Christoph Waltz joins Matt Damon, Reese Witherspoon in Alexander Payne movie
Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained) and actress Hong Chau have been cast in Alexander Payne’s new movie, Downsizing, Paramount announced Thursday. They flesh out a cast already populated by Matt Damon and Reese Witherspoon.
The Nebraska director co-wrote the script along with Sideways collaborator Jim Taylor. Set in the near future, the film follows a man who realizes he’d be better off if he shrunk himself.
Waltz appeared as the villain in last fall’s Bond movie, Spectre, and also stars in the upcoming Legend of Tarzan.
