Foxcatcher is the latest film to be added to BFI London Film Festival 2014.

Foxcatcher is the latest film from director Bennett Miller - who has brought us Capote and Moneyball - as he tackles another true story.

The film will receive its UK premiere at the festival and will be screen in on Thursday 16th October at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Speaking about the film's inclusion in the festival, Miller said:

"I’m thrilled that Foxcatcher will be playing the LFF and I’m thrilled to be attending. I suspect Britons will have a special relationship with this film."

Foxcatcher is based on true events and follows the tragic relationship between an eccentric multimillionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell) and two champion wrestlers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and his brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo).

Miller will be on the red carpet at the festival, along with actors Steve Carell and Sienna Miller.

Foxcatcher was one of the highlights of the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, where it received its world premiere.

It has already been announced that The Imitation Game and Fury will open and close this year's festival.

The 58th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express runs from Wednesday 8 October to Sunday 19 October.

The full programme for the Festival will be announced on Wednesday 3 September from the Odeon Leicester Square.

Foxcatcher will be released 9th January 2015.
