Out this week is the teaser trailer for The Zookeeper starring Kevin James. In the vein of Doctor Dolittle, the story follows Franklin Park Zookeeper, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James), as he has the ability to communicate with the animals he cares for.
“In The Zookeeper, the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kindhearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job. The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honored code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship – animal style.”
