Water for Elephants is not quite ready to wrap just yet, as this production reportedly hits the road!
Earlier today, WaterforElephantsfilm.com was the first to report on the possibility of Water for Elephants filming in or around Chattannoga, TN after this casting call went out:
Shoot/Start Date: July 30th through August 2nd, 2010
Location: Chattanooga, TN
[CAUCASIAN MEN ]
age 25-50. In good shape, willing to get a haircut (short on the sides). MUST either live in or close to Chattanooga.
Caucasian girls, age 9-11 years old. Caucasian boys age 7-15 years old. Must be willing to get a haircut. MUST either live in or close to Chattanooga.
A second source, WFEfilm is now confirming those reports. So it looks like there's at least a few more weeks of filming before Water for Elephants wraps. Just yesterday part of the FOX Studios in LA were transformed into Weehawken, NJ, as the circus came to town in an elaborate parade. We can only assume, that the scenes shot in Tennessee will be Jacob's college experience/hometown. But we'll have to wait and see. As always, we'll keep you posted!
