Courteney Cox has been cast as the female lead opposite Tim Allen in Revolution’s Zoom, being directed by Pete Hewitt, reports Variety. Production is scheduled for July, with Columbia Pictures to release the film on May 12, 2006.
Zoom is based on Jason Lethcoe’s graphic novel “Zoom’s Academy for the Super Gifted.” Allen plays Jack, formerly Captain Zoom, an out-of-shape former superhero who has lost his powers and is reluctantly called back into action to turn a ragtag group of kids into a new generation of superheroes in order to save the world from destruction.
Cox will play Marsha, a scientist with the secret agency that runs the superhero program.
The film was written by Adam Rifkin, David Berenbaum, Tim Allen and Matt Carroll.
