‘Downsizing’ to Open Venice Film Festival

Posted on July 24, 2017 and filed under Downsizing, Public Appearances

Alexander Payne’s Downsizing has been selected to open the Venice Film Festival, which runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 9, The Hollywood Reporter says. The satire, written by Payne and his frequent collaborator Jim Taylor, stars Matt Damon as a man who decides to shrink himself in order to find a better life. The cast also includes Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Laura Dern and Jason Sudeikis.

The Venice start is a first for Payne, whose films have played Cannes, Telluride, Toronto and Sundance, but not the Italian fest, where Downsizing‘s opening-night slot should position it for high-profile awards-season bid. Paramount plans to release the film Dec. 22.

Fingers crossed for Kristen Wiig to attend the premiere. More on this when available.
