Chevy Chase Aboard Zoom

Chevy Chase will star in Revolution Studio’s comedy Zoom, marking his first turn in a studio film since 2002’s “Orange County”.

The film, which stars Tim Allen and Courteney Cox and is being directed by Pete Hewitt, is based on Jason Lethcoe’s graphic novel “Zoom’s Academy for the Super Gifted.”

The Hollywood Reporter says the story centers on an out-of-shape superhero (Allen) who is called back into action to turn a ragtag group of kids into a new generation of superheroes to save the world.

Columbia Pictures is planning a May 12, 2006 release.
