The Twitterverse and beyond was abuzz over Matt Damon sitings across Peel late last week and the rumors are indeed true. The Martian star was in town filming his latest movie Downsizing at various locations across the GTA, a Brampton business included.

He was also spotted at a high school in Markham, at York University, and a few other Toronto locations along with his co-star Kristen Wig.

Downsizing is a sci-fi satire in which a man and his wife, who’ve decided that their lives have gone awry, decide to shrink themselves. Unfortunately for the man, his wife backs out at the last minute.

The film, which is set to be released in 2017 will also include actors Christoph Waltz, Alec Baldwin, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jason Sudeikis.

So if you spotted a seemingly uncanny Matt Damon look-alike around town last week, your eyes weren’t playing tricks on you, it was the real deal!
