Actress Diane Kruger will be next seen in an untitled film directed by Robert Zemeckis.
The 40-year-old actress joins the cast along with actor Steve Carell in the film based on Jeff Malmberg's 2010 documentary Marwencol, reported Variety.
The plot centres on a man who recuperates from an assault by building a miniature World War II-era village in his backyard.
Kruger will play the role of Deja Thoris, the Belgian Witch of Marwencol in the world of the backyard village.
Zemeckis started working on the project two years ago under his Universal-based ImageMovers banner.
The filmmaker is also producing from a screenplay he wrote with Caroline Thompson.
The movie also stars Leslie Mann and Janelle Monae.
