We Bought a Zoo, adapted from Benjamin Mee's book, is set in Southern California, and is about a father who moves his young family to the countryside to renovate and re-open a struggling zoo. Twentieth Century Fox is producing the film, which is being directed by Oscar winner Cameron Crowe, from a screenplay written by Crowe and Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses, Morning Glory). Fox will be bringing We Bought a Zoo to theaters starting December 23rd later this year. This already looks good!
