Paramount, Raimi lock up ‘Zoo’

TenNapel's graphic novel coming in spring

Paramount Pictures has acquired feature rights to “Monster Zoo,” a graphic novel by Douglas TenNapel that will be published in the spring by Image.

Buckaroo Entertainment’s Sam Raimi and Josh Donen will produce with Ellen Goldsmith Vein. Vein is from the Gotham Group. Raimi, who is repping the Universal thriller “Drag Me to Hell,” has committed only to produce at this point.

TenNapel, whose past graphic creations include “Earthworm Jim” and “Cat Scratch,” tells the story of a young boy who discovers his local zoo contains critters much more frightening than the ordinary collection.
