Filming is due to start next week on the Hollywood movie based on a Sparkwell zoo.
The star-studded cast, including Scarlett Johansson, Matt Damon, Thomas Haden-Church and Colin Ford, is due to begin production on the Cameron Crowe-directed film on Monday.
Despite the movie being based on ‘We Bought A Zoo’ – the mémoire of the Dartmoor Zoological Park owner Ben Mee – filming is taking place on a specially-made Hollywood set.
Filming is anticipated to last for 50 days and the film will be hitting cinemas on December 23, 2011.

The sad news Tuesday of Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ divorce conjures a lot of questions, like who gets the New York apartment, the L.A. home, maybe custody of the favorite frozen-yogurt joint. But what about The Whale?
Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson A several-ton orca looms over the Reynolds-Johansson split, in the form of a documentary narrated by Reynolds and executive produced by both actors. The film follows Luna, a killer whale separated from his pod near British Columbia — not far from where Johansson and Reynolds wed in a secret ceremony in September 2008.
“We have no reason to believe that their passion and commitment to this project will waver as a result of any changes in their personal lives,” a producer for the film told the Ministry in an e-mail.
It’s been reported by several websites and confirmed by her publicist: Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds have separated.
“After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage,” they say in a joint statement. “We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
According to a source, the couple quietly split six months ago, and Johansson initiated the move. The actress began apartment-hunting in New York City and is currently in Jamaica with some girlfriends, the source adds.
However, last month the pair were spotted looking cozy together at New York hotspot Avenue.
