It’s 2011, and as Eddie Vedder prophesied lo these many years ago, this year marks the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam. The movie is called Pearl Jam Twenty, and much like the band, the project is shrouded in mystery (don’t know if this is a joke or not). In 2009, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready was quoted as saying that the film’s director Cameron Crowe would have ““….all our footage, with all of our existing footage that we have” at his disposal for his documentary. I’m guessing that must include at least 100 hours of Eddie Vedder scowling.

This isn’t the only thing connecting the band with Cameron Crowe. The Almost Famous auteur also directed the anti-establishment band in a Target commercial (!) and the video for their song “The Fixer.” In addition to that, it’s also being reported that head Pearl Jammer Eddie Vedder is a big part of the soundtrack for Cameron Crowe’s new movie We Bought a Zoo.

So expect to be learning a lot about Pearl Jam in 2011, especially if you’re like me and your only direct knowledge of the band comes from the copy of Ten that you can’t bring yourself to get rid of for some reason. (via The Playlist)

Cameron Crowe is doing an ensemble dramedy with a rock soundtrack. Also, the sky is blue. Another name has been added to the all-star cast of We Bought a Zoo, a movie in which a family, after losing their mother, buys a zoo and lives there, with little else known about the script, save for a love interest and hijinks. However, much has been discussed about the strong cast, which somehow got more interesting with the addition of John Michael Higgins, best known as the “other, other, other guy” from the Christopher Guest universe. He also has had scene-stealing performances in both The Break-Up and lauded TV series Arrested Development.

Higgins joins the wildly over-scheduled Matt Damon, as well as Elle Fanning, Patrick Fugit, Angus McFayden, Scarlett Johansson, and Thomas Haden Church in Crowe’s first outing since the divisive Elizabethtown in 2005. Only two things are known about Higgins character at this time. He’s a zoo inspector (!) who’s got it out for Damon, and he’s “cursed with an active and loud stomach.” Dial up the wacky to 11!

Because Cameron Crowe films are required by law to have thoughtful, nostalgic rock soundtracks, Eddie Vedder and Neil Young will feature prominently in the soundtrack. I wouldn’t rule out an appearance by Crowe’s wife, Nancy Wilson on the soundtrack as well. The project has been fast tracked for a December 23, 2011 release. (Playlist)
