According to Deadline, Scarlett Johansson has been cast to star in the film “We Bought A Zoo” with Matt Damon.

The film, directed by Cameron Crowe, tells the true story of a family that moves to the UK to take over a decrepit zoo in desperate need of attention. Here’s the full synopsis:

Between his wife Katherine’s diagnosis of glioblastoma and her quiet death less than three years later, Benjamin Mee, his siblings and his mother bought a bedraggled zoo, complete with decaying buildings, a ragtag group of animals, an eclectic staff and a reputation that had been quickly going to the wolves. Mee writes about caring for his dying wife and their two young children, dealing with Code Red emergencies (when a dangerous animal escapes its confines), hiring staff, learning about his new two- and four-footed charges and setting his sights on refurbishing his zoo into a sanctuary for breeding and raising endangered animals.

Look for this one to hit sometime in December 2011.
