Matthew Broderick, Virginia Madsen and Alan Alda are looking to team up and co-star in the family comedy Diminished Capacity. As the title suggests, the film also has to do with memory loss.

Broderick, Madsen, Alda for Diminished Capacity

Broderick will play the lead role, a man who suffers memory loss after getting hit on the head. He then takes a trip with his Alzheimer's-addled uncle (Alda) and his high school sweetheart (Madsen) to a memorabilia show as the group concocts a scheme to sell a rare baseball card.

The film will be directed by Terry Kinney, who recently got some experience behind the camera while directing (and starring in) several episodes of Oz. The screenplay isn't done just yet, with scribe Sherwood Kiraly working to adapt his novel of the same name.

Bobby Cannavale and Lois Smith are also attached to star.

Production on Diminished Capacity is expected to begin this spring in New York and Chicago.

Broderick has a couple projects coming our way including the Helen Hunt directorial debut, Then She Found Me, and the DreamWorks Animation, Bee Movie.

Stay tuned for updates.
