Water For Elephants: Director Yells Cut For The Last Time & Meet Jacob's Kids!

Director Francis Lawrence (@Hibbits) tweeted his last production update from the set of  Water for Elephants Wednesday night.

That's a wrap on WFE!!!!!!

How lucky are we, that in the age of twitter.. we get to be part of the last minutes of filming in a big studio production, eventhough we're thousands of miles away.
Just shot probably our most beautiful train shot. Setting sun, reflections in the water & white steam shooting thru the trees.
Down to the very last shot. Train thru a tunnel at night.
Rolling the cameras...
What a ride this has been.. and Wednesday we got a few more details on what was shot in Georgia, thanks to the mom of the children who are playing Jacob's kids in the film (she also managed to get a GREAT pic with Rob).

Sonya almost managed to make it into the movie herself. In a pinch, they nearly pulled her in as a body double for Witherspoon before deciding not to shoot the scene. But she did manage to get some one-on-one time with Pattinson during the Saturday night cast party. "He was so sweet and really nice and he let me take a picture with him".

We will continue to bring you post-production updates as they come in. April 15, 2011 can't get here soon enough!


  1. weren't jacobs kids grown in the end of the book?

  2. The script I read doesn't end that way either. **spoiler** It ends in present day at the circus with old Jacob. However, I can see that with some artistic license, Mr. Lawrence could make a beautiful ending with Jacob, Marlena and their kids. Can't wait to see his interpretation.
