He maybe everyone’s favourite Vampire but now we hear as well as staring alongside Uma Thurman in Bel Ami Robert Pattinson is set to star alongside Reese Witherspoon in a film adaptation of the best-selling novel, Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen.

Pattinson will play play Jacob Jankowski, a veterinary student who drops out of college to work as a vet for a travelling circus. In the film he falls for a circus performer played by Reese Witherspoon, who is married to an abusive animal trainer (likely to be played by Sean Penn).
