Writer-director Alexander Payne’s upcoming comedy DOWNSIZING, starring Matt Damon is set to premiere at this year’s Venice International Film Festival, in Competition.

Damon plays an ordinary suburbanite who convinces his wife (Kristen Wiig) to go small– and buy into a richer lifestyle. So they get shrunk. Also starring Laura Dern, Christoph Waltz and Jason Sudeikis.

Venice has a strong record for pushing potential Oscar winners into award campaign mode, from Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman to Damien Chazelle’s La La Land last year.
