What might 2011 hold for the actor? He's reportedly in the running for a major role opposite Oscar winners Sean Penn and Reese Witherspoon.

According to industry newsletter Variety, Pattinson might star in Water for Elephants, a big screen adaption of Sara Gruen's best-selling book.

The story is set during the Great Depression. It focuses on a Cornell University student who ditches school behind after his parents are killed, and joins up with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.
