Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson are on for new film

Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson will play the leads in the upcoming Cameron Crowe project We Bought A Zoo, from the memoir by Benjamin Mee. Filming is to go underway early in 2011. Damon is still filming Contagion for Steve Soderbergh at this time.

We Bought A Zoo by Benjamin Mee, is told from Benjamin's perspective, which draws you in and makes you feel as though you're the one on this crazy zoo-buying adventure. Since it's a true story, it makes it seem all the more exciting. You follow the Mee family from their home in France to the Dartmoor Zoological Park in Devon, experiencing all the difficulties and labor of rebuilding a zoo.
­ Benjamin Mee tells about how he felt and what he thought every time he met a new "character". Through the story you get to meet Benjamin's family, including his wife, children, mother, and brother. You also get to meet the zoo's "old" staff (those who stay on and those who choose to leave), newest members of the crew, and some visitors that pop in every once in a while to offer advise.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
