Rob Pattinson Joins Reese in New Movie

Get ready to see more Rob Pattinson! He’s well on his way to becoming an A-lister, especially with this new role. According to Variety, our favorite vampire will be co-starring with Reese Witherspoon in the film Water For Elephants.

The movie, based on the novel of the same title, is about a circus veterinarian working for the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth during the Great Depression.

I Am Legend's Francis Lawrence is attached to direct, and Sean Penn is also close to sealing a deal to join the cast. According to Entertainment Weekly, Pattinson would play Jacob Jankowski, an orphaned veterinary student who is put in charge of caring for the animals. He falls in love with beautiful equestrian rider Marlena (Witherspoon) who is married to the troupe’s charismatic but dangerous animal trainer August (Penn).

We’d like to be a part of that love triangle!
