Foxcatcher Oscar nominee Steve Carell will star in a film adaptation of the acclaimed and unusual documentary Marwencol.

The documentary told the story of photographer Mark Hogancamp's recovery following a brutal attack, which left him struggling for his life.

In Jeff Malmberg's documentary, Hogancamp shares his story of how he completely lost his memory as a result of the attack.

He adjusted to his new life by building a miniature world, filled with dolls whom he brings to life with complex, intertwining stories, which help him deal with his own real-life experiences.

Robert Zemeckis is bringing the fascinating story to the big screen with Carell playing Hogancamp.
