The film is being directed by two-time Oscar winner Alexander Payne and it’s about an “Omaha man who joins the throngs of people undergoing a new process that reduces people to a tiny fraction of their size and then moves to one of the many communities of small people that are sprouting up around the world,” according to Variety.
The movie was originally set to star Reese Witherspoon opposite Matt, but she had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts and Kristen later joined the project.
