In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) will be writing We Bought a Zoo for 20th Century Fox.

The project is based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee. It was published in September by Weinstein Books.

The story looks at how Mee and his wife, who was battling cancer, bought an old Zoo in England and rehabilitated the 200 exotic animals there.
