Exclamation unusual-shaped doorway -- help!

Hi. I'm remodelling my attic and putting in walls. Because of the shape of the ceilings, I am left with a doorway that's a strange shape: a rectangle, with a triangle on top (kind of like a fatter version of the picture below). I am trying to figure out a door that could fit here.

I can't find anything about cusom-shaped doors. I considered a pocket door, but the angled wall (on the top right) is an outside wall.

Any suggestions?

You can use a regular prehung door, but you'll have to purchase some additional jamb material so that you can cut the door down and change the shape of the jamb. It will also have to hinge the correct way (hinges on the left, according to your picture) because if you tried to hinge it on the right, it would hit the ceiling as it swings open.
