Sean Penn, Robert Pattinson fetch Water for Elephants?

Perhaps Robert Pattinson wants to expand his fanbase beyond the tween girl market. He’s apparently considering starring in a film version of Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants, alongside Sean Penn and Reese Witherspoon.

According to Total Film, Penn and Pattinson are in talks with Fox 2000 to join the cast, of which Witherspoon is already confirmed. Adapted by Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) and directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), the film would follow the reminisces of Jacob, “a 90 year old former circus worker, who left college and joined the circus life during the great depression.”
