Kevin James Becomes A “Zookeeper”

Out doing press for his new comedy “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”, actor Kevin James (“Hitch,” “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry”) confirmed to Coming Soon that he’s still in active development on a new comedy called “The Zookeeper” for MGM.

First linked to the project last year, James says “There’d been a draft of it and there’d been writers on it but we’re rewriting and working on it now, and I hope to have my fingerprints on it and bring what I can to it… I play a zookeeper another guy in a uniform, no moustache in this one, we may go very bushy sideburns I don’t even know, but it’s in the beginning stages of that.”

Scribes Jay Scherick and David Ronn are apparently still attached to the project.
