Rumor has it...

...That RPatz may be taking the lead role in the film adaptation of Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants.
I read the amazingly-researched tome over a year ago, and was completely mesmerized by the dramatic tale of a Cornell vet-school student who joins a circus after suffering a horrific family tragedy.
Reese Witherspoon has already signed on as the beautiful circus performer, Marlena, and Sean Penn is mulling the role of the twisted animal trainer. A promising cast, me thinks.
I'm no circus or (heaven forbid!) clown fan, but if you haven't read WFE, get to it, and get ready to anticipate seeing Pattinson in the film almost as much as you look forward to seeing his sparkly-skinned self in the Twilight series.

I just got goosebumps! This is AMAZING news! I just finished the book on Monday and it was SO good... RPattz will be incredible in this role. I can't say enough of how much I loved this book... even though I finished it a couple days ago my mind keeps going over the story again and again!

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm not really a fan of his (well, not in Twilight anyway) but I do LOVE Water for Elephants! It's one of my favorite books and I couldn't be more excited to see it made into a movie!

Haven and Home said...

I have been wanting to read this, now this gives me more of a reason!

donna baker said...

Thanks for the thumbs up. The story isn't about animal cruelty is it. I can't take it - can't read about it or see it. That's why I live far away from the maddening crowd.

Southern Aspirations said...

oh how interesting! I've not read it.. I forget what I was nervous about possibly being in there, but perhaps the push I need to check it out!

I've given you a Sunshine Award (I thought so appropriate given your Blog name). :-) Hope all is well.
