Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in more images from Water For Elephants
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
As Robert Pattinson continues to try and establish himself as something more than Edward Cullen, the project of his that I’m most looking forward to is WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. Not necessarily because of his involvement, but because it also features Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. It also has a pretty good story, in that it centers on a young veterinarian that takes a job for a traveling circus. While there, he meets a cruel animal trainer (Waltz) and the trainer’s beautiful wife (Witherspoon), who also happens to be the show’s star. So the pressure is on Pattinson to deliver in this part, because it has everything else going for it.
Francis Lawrence is directing the film and he last directed the great I AM LEGEND and CONSTANTINE. So this is kind of a departure from what he normally works on. The pictures below were taken on the set last week and show a bruised and battered Pattinson and a sultry Witherspoon. These aren’t quite as glamorous as the last pics we saw of Pattinson and Witherspoon.
