Water for Elephants: the film

Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants is currently being filmed (Richard LaGravenese wrote the screenplay), with an April 2011 release date scheduled according to IMDB. Reese Witherspoon is playing Marlena, Robert Pattinson is Jacob Jankowski as a young man, Hal Holbrook is the elderly Jacob, and Christoph Waltz is August.

Having read the book, how likely are you to go see the movie version?

Do these actors fit your idea of the book characters? If not, then who would you have chosen?

What scenes are essential to you? Which might you leave out? Would you change the ending?

Want to see more? Water for Elephants book publisher Algonquin Books has much more information about the film, including photos (see Sara Gruen hang around with an elephant, literally!) and news from the set.
