ARTICLE: New Robert Pattinson & Christoph Waltz quotes about WFE

From Total Film magazine (August 2010)

“I want to work with an elephant,” says Robert Pattinson, on the California set of circus romance ‘Water For Elephants’. Why the hell not? Adapted from Sara Gruen’s depression-era bestseller, Pattinson plays a young vet, Jacob, who runs away to join a traveling circus after his parents are killed. There he falls in love with beautiful equestrian Marlena (Reese Witherspoon) and befriends untrainable pachyderm Rosie. ‘Inglourious Basterds’ Oscar winner Christoph Waltz – who’s fast establishing himself as baddie de jour – rounds out the cast as abusive, Dumbo-bothering bastard August Rosenbluth, in what Waltz calls “a sensational adaptation”, with Francis Lawrence (‘I Am Legend’) on directing duties. Nevermind the elephants, then, what’s it like working with Waltz? “He’s terrifying!” smiles Pattinson. We suspected as much.

    The story is touching in it’s ability to capture the horror of the situation Jacob is going through.. Although it must have been difficult to work around the multitude of crazy fans stalking the set the cast for this movie looks to be superb and well chosen by a casting director that understood the mood of the story. Can’t wait to see the results.

    I really loved Christoph Waltz in ‘Inglourious Basterds’, he was fantastic! Can’t wait to see him in ‘Water For Elephants’ working right next to Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson. They are all great actors! And they all have great taste in the books they choose to read/make movies out of, next year is too far off!!!
