Matt Damon is making a movie in Toronto this summer

Toronto regularly transforms into Hollywood North thanks to the slew of high-profile movies filmed here each year. So who can you expect to spot hanging around the city within the next few months?

While Suicide Squad took over Toronto streets in 2015, its looks like this spring and summer will be all about Downsizing, a satire directed by Alexander Payne (known for The Descendants and Sideways). It shoots here between April and July.

Most notably, Downsizing stars Matt Damon, Reese Witherspoon, Alec Baldwin and Jason Sudeikis. Both Damon and Witherspoon shot two of their most famous movies here in Toronto - those would be Good Will Hunting and American Psycho, respectively.

UPDATE: This article initially referenced a casting call for the film. This has now been removed at the request of the Casting Call agency.
