‘Water For Elephants’ Director Teases A Tentative Release Date

Director Francis Lawrence teased a possible release date for “Water for Elephants” and also dished about his relationship with Gaga.

“I would love to [work with Gaga again]. No I haven’t [heard from her] because I pretty much became unavailable right after [the ‘Bad Romance’] shoot. I was off making ‘Water For Elephants’ for the better part of a year. But if she had a new song and wanted to do something, I would do it in a second,” Francis shared. “She was really fun to work with.”

Gaga’s Little Monsters have their own brand of fan dedication, but it seems like no fandom can possibly come close to the insane dedication shown by Twi-hards. Francis said that, when comparing acolytes, it was the “Twilight” fans who made themselves most known.

“On ‘Water For Elephants,’ every day there would be, like, 50 people [staked out],” he recalled. “We shot in Tennessee for about a week and there would be people camped out in the hallways of our hotel. All day, all night long, it didn’t matter. People were there to try to catch a glimpse. I’m proud of the movie, I’m actually sitting in the cutting room right now.”

Even though filming wrapped at the beginning of August, Francis said he’s not even close to being done with the editing process. “This is only my fourth week of cutting,” he said. “Then I just took a quick two-week vacation, and now I’m cutting. So I’m probably cutting all the way up to Christmas. I think it’s gonna be [a spring release], but it has not been confirmed yet.”
