“We Bought A Zoo” is based on the Benjamin Mee memoir of the same name. It tells the story of how Mee, the former Guardian columnist, moved his family to Dartmoor Wildlife Park after buying the place with an ambitious plan of renovating it and helping the animals that live there.
While Mee successfully pulled off the job, he was struck by tragedy as, in the middle of his efforts, his wife Katherine learned she had terminal cancer.
Matt Damon will play Benjamin with rumours that Amy Adams may be in line to play his wife.
Other casting still to be announced is for Rosie Mee, Benjamin's 6-year-old and extremely lively daughter and Lily the 15 year old local girl who befriends Dylan.
Filming is scheduled to start in Thousand Oaks, California in January.
