An exciting report hit the press late Friday that Robert Pattinson and Sean Penn were “circling” chances to star in the film adaptation of Sarah Gruen’s bestselling novel Water For Elephants. We have details on the role if Rob commits, but here’s a hint: Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in love? We don’t know who’s more jealous – us or Jake Gyllenhaal.
Probably us. An MTV blog has described Robert Pattinson’s role as the following if he takes the part, which is said to be “likely”: “The story follows a young man — presumably Pattinson — who drops out of school after his parents are killed to join the circus. Penn would play a disturbed animal trainer who works for said circus while the previously confirmed Reese Withspoon would play his wife.”
