According to Variety, Kevin James will star in MGM's The Zookeeper.

Frank Coraci will be directing this film. It is written by Jay Scherick and David Ronn.

It follows a zookeeper (James) who wants to leave his job but the animals he takes care of talk him out of it.

MGM picked up the film for $2 million in a bidding war last April.
