Cameron Crowe has to bounce back. He just has to. There’s no way the heartfelt filmmaker responsible for Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and the masterful Almost Famous can deliver another misfire after Elizabethtown. While he has flexed his creative muscle on two impressive musical documentaries in The Union and Pearl Jam Twenty (both worth your time), Crowe fans are waiting with bated breath for his next feature, We Bought a Zoo, to see if the beloved storyteller can get back on track. Today, a poster dropped on TheUncool.com, Crowe’s official fan site. We have it below:



It’s a simple design for what could be a simple drama about a wayward soul (Matt Damon) who moves his young family to a large tract of California land that happens to house a semi-defunct zoo. It’s a rebuilding project, much like Crowe, himself. But I love when Crowe has a dependable leading man in his back pocket (Tom Cruise, John Cusack), and Damon certainly qualifies. The trailer, recently released online, also gives me hope.

We Bought A Zoo is based on Benjamin Mee’s book, and is being adapted by Crowe and Aline Brosh McKenna (Morning Glory, 27 Dresses). It co-stars Scarlett Johansson, Elle Fanning, Thomas Haden Church, John Michael Higgins and Patrick Fugit. It hits theaters on Dec. 23.
