WE BOUGHT A DANISH ZOO: FIRST IMAGES
COPENHAGEN – Cameron Crowe has confirmed that We Bought a Danish Zoo will be his next film.
The famous Almost Famous director said:
People know me as the warm hearted, life affirming comedy guy, but there is a darkness in me that no one has yet witnessed and this year it’s coming out.
The new film will star Chloe Grace Moretz, Scarlett Johansson and Matt Damon who on buying a zoo are confounded by the no nonsense European attitude to nature ‘red in tooth and claw’ compared to their own cloying sentimentality. Damon commented:
The zoo is failing when we buy it, but when one of the animals is accidentally eaten by a lion suddenly people come to visit. So we start to engineer other ‘accidents’ to increase the zoo’s popularity. Scarlett wanted to add a scene where we threw a few Palestinians in as well, but we nixed that as too ‘controversial’.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the piece will be Matthew Perry’s return to form as Per the comedy janitor. The Friends star admitted:
When I started on day one I was very nervous. I did my comedy Danish accent and everyone was like ‘No stop, it’s awful, really. Jesus Christ!’ and making dry retching noises. But I knew that was their way of encouraging me.
We Bought a Danish Zoo will be released in 2015, rated NC-17.
