Amy Adams is one wanted woman... However, she is also having discussions for Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo as well as a significant role in Dreamworks Pictures’ Welcome to People, which just landed Chris Pine in the lead.
Adams’ involvement in the Muppets flick appears the most solid, though Disney isn’t commenting. Sources tell EW.com that dates are still being worked out as she entertains the two other parts. Adams’ reps couldn’t be reached for comment. It would be interesting to see her play the zookeeper opposite Matt Damon in We Bought a Zoo. Damon is already set to play the lead role of Benjamin Mee, a recently widowed man who buys a dilapidated zoo as a condition of purchasing a beautiful country estate. Crowe is said to be looking at a short list of actresses for the part.
Still, it's not clear if Affleck will accept the gig, as he's also said to be considering directing Homeland, a pilot for Showtime from 24 producer Howard Gordon about a sleeper cell and an ex-CIA operative, and an unknown "two-hander" at Warner Bros. that might star his old pal Matt Damon.
