Its rumored Robert Pattinson might be filming "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.
What has been confirmed is that Rob will be in NYC on March 1, 2010 for the premiere of "Remember Me". He'll be joined on the red carpet by co-stars Emilie de Ravin and Pierce Brosnan. The premiere is happening in March because Pattinson is working on “Bel Ami” in Europe and can’t go back and forth. He'll be doing press for the movie at the same time as the premiere so he can get to work on "Bel Ami" without any distractions.
