Thesp would co-star in Crowe pic for Fox

Angus MacFadyen is in talks to co-star in the Cameron Crowe-helmed “We Bought a Zoo” for Twentieth Century Fox.

MacFadyen would appear in the Aline Brosh McKenna-penned script along with Matt Damon, who has been officially confirmed for the project. Julie Yorn and Ilona Herzberg produce with Marc R. Gordon co-producing.

Pic, based on a true story, centers around Benjamin Mee, a struggling single father who moves his family to an estate that turns out to be a zoo. MacFadyen would play the zookeeper.
