Updated and Revised:
Steve Carell stars in Robert Zemeckis’s next big movie as a man who’s lost his memory after a severe beating and turns to his imagination to cope. Based on documentary Marwencol, it’s the true story of Mark Hogancamp who was beaten by a gang of teenagers and woke up with no memory of his life. To cope, he built a “one-sixth scale model of a World War II-era Belgian village” in his backyard with small dolls in the image of him and his friends.
Leslie Mann, Janelle Monae and Eiza Gonzalez co-star.
Robert Zemeckis will direct based on a script co-written with Caroline Thompson.
The big-budget, special effects movie is filming in metro Vancouver from August 14th to September 28th (dates subject to change).
The Untitled Zemeckis project already has a theatrical release date — November 21st next year.
