Robert Pattinson wants to work with an Elephant

Although we still don’t have official confirmation that Rob will be starring Water for Elephants, meaning industry/studio confirmation, I think we can take his comments here to be an unofficial one.  The WFE talk starts around the 1:55 mark.

“I’m doing a film in the summer, I THINK, it’s working with a bunch of animals, like exotic animals and I just think you’re never going to be able to do that in reality…I wanna work with an elephant”

    It will be great to see Rob in a role like this. I can’t wait.

  • I sincerely hope that they do not use live animals in this movie. The reason is that many of the animals used and abused are owned by animals trainers or circuses who are less than kind to these animals. The cruelty to the animals that this author writes about in her book DOES exist and continues to go on presently! Why would you then hire these same people to make a movie about how cruel this industry is? Perhaps Rob Pattinson can make a difference and actually bring a change in the industry by advocating for no live animals to be used in this movie. Computer animation has come a long way…such as Jumanji, The Golden Compass and The Lions, The Witch and the Wardrobe movies…it is not necessary to use and abuse live animals any longer. Can this movie be a catalyst for change???
