Scot Armstrong Polishing Zookeeper

ON

Scot Armstrong has been hired to do additional script work on the MGM comedy The Zookeeper, says The Hollywood Reporter. Walt Becker is attached to direct and produce the film along with Jennifer Eatz and Broken Road’s Todd Garner, who came up with the idea.

Original writers Jay Scherick and David Ronn sold their spec script — about a lonely, misguided zookeeper who gets unexpected romantic help from the animals in his care — to MGM in April.

Armstrong has several projects in development, including Multiple Mary, which he co-wrote and will direct and produce for New Line.
