The first pictures of Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz in Water for Elephants have been unveiled.
Based on the historical novel of the same name by Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants is the story of veterinary student, Jacob Jankowski (Pattinson), who joins a travelling circus during the Great Depression. However, he soon discovers that the head trainer, August, played by Inglourious Basterds‘ Christoph Waltz, is abusing the animals, as well as his wife Marlena (Witherspoon).
Shooting finished back in August, but with the novel being reprinted to feature these famous faces on the cover, we’ve been able to get our first glimpse of the lead actors’ looks.
Water for Elephants comes from Francis Lawrence, the director of I Am Legend, with a script by P.S., I Love You‘s screenwriter and director, Richard LaGravenese.
In another step away his Edward Cullen character, R-Patz will also be starring alongside Uma Thurman in upcoming film, Bel Ami (nothing to do with X Factor, apparently), before donning the period costume in Water for Elephants, which is due out next April. We can’t wait!
