Rumors are rampant that Robert Pattinson may be filming parts of Water for Elephants in Ithaca, NY this summer. The film’s plot, which centers on a Cornell University veterinary student who drops out and joins the circus after his parents are killed, makes Ithaca an obvious choice among potential filming locations.
It is being reported that the production may be descending on Cornell’s campus in Ithaca this June though the reports have not been verified. Cornell University press officer Blaine Friedlander told the Ithaca Journal that he was unable to confirm whether the school would be used as a film location.
As an upstate New Yorker myself, I’ll be paying close attention to this story but I’m not to get too excited by the prospect of RPattz filming here until the rumors are confirmed. Stay tuned!
