Jónsi of Sigur Rós to score Cameron Crowe-directed We Bought a Zoo; Cameron Crowe movies to keep on sucking

Cameron Crowe makes bad movies, Jónsi (of Sigur Rós) makes good music, and, like tuna fish and grape jelly, they might as well go together because why the fuck not. I mean, it is a well-known fact that Crowe’s 2000 film Almost Famous is what inspired Jónsi to join a band!

The movie, titled We Bought a Zoo, is based on a Hallmark card (actually a Benjamin Mee memoir) about a widowed father who fulfills his late wife’s wishes to renovate and re-open a down-on-its-luck zoo (how quirky!) and stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, and Elle Fanning. Trust me, you’re going to get roped into seeing this.

The movie is set for release on December 23 of this year and will most likely be lost in the shuffle of the last Christmas before the world ends in 2012, so enjoy this news for now.
