Giamatti, Witherspoon And Cohen Downsize For Miniature Satire
PAUL GIAMATTI and REESE WITHERSPOON are teaming up with comedian SACHA BARON COHEN to star in a social satire about miniature people.
The actors have signed up to writer/director Alexander Payne's next film, Downsizing.
Giamatti, who previously worked with Payne on 2004's Sideways, will portray a poor man who decides to undergo surgery to shrink himself after becoming convinced the operation will drastically improve his life.
Witherspoon will play a woman Giamatti's character meets in his new life as a small person, while six foot, three inch (1.91 metre)-tall Cohen will be reduced from his towering height to portray a pint-sized foreigner, according to Daily Variety.
