Sara Gruen’s smash hit novel Water for Elephants will soon become a movie. A defanged Robert Pattinson stars as Jacob Jankoski, who joins the circus during the Great Depression. Reese Witherspoon plays the object of his affection, Marlena Rosenbluth, equestrienne. There’s no indication as to who plays Rosie, the titular elephant.
Water for Elephants (the movie) will be released April 15. The book is available right now.–David E
