Kevin James comedy “Zookeeper” uncages in July 2011

By Staff

In a schedule change that continues to underscore Kevin James’ prowess at the box office, Sony is moving its Kevin James comedy “The Zookeeper” from Oct. 8 to July 8, 2011 according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Similar to live-action film, “Dr. Dolittle,” “Zookeeper” features talking live animals voiced by prolific celebs such as Adam Sandler, Cher and Sylvester Stallone. Plot revolves around a zookeeper whose animal friends break their code of silence and assist their friend in wooing a woman.

Sony recently picked the film up from MGM, its co-producer on “Zookeepers.” Film is directed by Frank Coraci who has soared Sandler to great B.O. heights with “The Water Boy” and “The Wedding Singer.”

“It’s got tremendous heart and soul,” Sony distribution president Rory Bruer tells the Hollywood Reporter. “And talking animals? Gimme a break, it’s so funny. ”

James has seen his co-starring projects with Will Smith (“Hitch”) and Sandler (“I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry”) soar past $100 million. However, after going solo with the January 2009 hit “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” Kevin James saw a worldwide gross of $183 million-plus.
