Thanks to the Twilight series, Robert Pattinson (“Edward Cullen”) is no stranger to being featured in movie tie-in versions of books (he’s been on the cover of Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, of course).
Algonquin Books has recently announced that Pattinson and his Water For Elephants co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz will be featured in new movie tie-in editions of that book, by Sara Gruen, as well.
The attached image is, Algonquin has explained, a catalogue spread which contains the details.
According to it, there’ll be two: a paperback movie tie-in at $14.95 and a mass market movie tie-in for $7.99. They’ll both be released on March 1, 2011, just a few weeks before the April 15th release of the film.
In Water For Elephants, Pattinson portrays “Jacob Jankowski,” the protagonist of the story. He is the young version of the character – the one who joins a travelling circus in the depression era.
If you haven’t read WFE yet, it is definitely a light and fun book worth checking out – especially if you’re a Pattinson fan and plan to see the film.
