Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon seem like an odd pair, don’t they? I think because she’s usually associated with romantic comedies and he’s got that broody, dramatic, ‘Twilight’ thing going.
But they’re starring together in ‘Water for Elephants,’ a 20th Century Fox Film due in theaters April 22, 2011.
He plays a veterinary student who abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.
It’s directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed ‘I Am Legend’ and ‘Constantine,’ and has a slate of upcoming films, including ‘Marco Polo,’ ‘Samson,’ and an ‘I Am Legend’ prequel.
‘Water for Elephants’ is based on the novel by Sara Gruen and also stars Christoph Waltz, Hal Holbrook and Dan Lauria.
