There was a time when it seemed that everyone I knew was reading Sara Gruen’s best-selling book, "Water for Elephants." I still don't know exactly what the book is about, but it seems that it will see a film adaptation soon.

According to Collider, Sean Penn and Robert Pattinson are in talks to star in I AM LEGEND director Francis Lawrence's upcoming adaptation of the story. Reese Witherspoon is already attached to star in the film. The script will be written by P.S. I LOVE YOU scribe Richard LaGravenese.

The story follows a Cornell University veterinary student during the Great Depression who leaves his studies after the death of his parents. He takes a job with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth, working as an animal caregiver.

There is no news as to what roles Penn or Pattinson would play, but I would be curious to see the two team up. Sean Penn recently confirmed that he will co-star in the Farrelly Brothers’ THE THREE STOOGES. Up next for Pattinson is BEL AMI with a host of beautiful women.
