Cameron Crowe circles “Zoo”

New York magazine’s Vulture is reporting that music-journalist-turned-filmmaker Cameron Crowe may be directing “We Bought a Zoo” in the near future. It’s an adaptation of a memoir by British writer Benjamin Mee and “The Devil Wears Prada” screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna has penned a script, but Crowe is likely to do some rewriting. “Zoo” recounts Mee’s experiences when he moved his family to a dilapidated mansion with an accompanying wildlife park in southwest England. The family took on the task of reviving the preserve but was devastated by the cancer prognosis and deteriorating health of Mee’s wife, Katherine.
Crowe took a critical and box-office drubbing with his last outing, 2005’s “Elizabethtown,” but is best known for the beloved 1989 teen romance “Say Anything,” the 1996 romantic comedy “Jerry Maguire” and the autobiographical 2001 “Almost Famous,” for which he won a best original screenplay Oscar. The latter film recently revived Crowe’s standing when it turned up on numerous best-of-decade lists. After establishing himself as an adolescent prodigy at Rolling Stone, he began his Hollywood career when he adapted his book “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”
