Downsizing, already set to star Matt Damon, tells the high concept story of a man (Damon) and his wife (Witherspoon) who, deciding that their lives have gotten out of hand, decide to voluntarily have themselves shrunk down. Unfortunately for the man, his wife backs out at the last minute.
One day after 20th Century Fox moved the next Planet of the Apes movie from a July 29, 2016 release to July 14, 2017, Universal Pictures has taken the opportunity and moved back the Untitled Next Bourne Chapter from July 15, 2016 to that July 29, 2016 date. The only other comedy on that date is Fox’s Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Greengrass, Damon and Greg Goodman also produce.
The action-thriller is written by Greengrass, Damon and Christopher Rouse.
