The Water for Elephants book publisher, Algonquin Books, confirmed to WaterForElephantsFilm.com today that plans exist to reissue the book as a movie tie-in edition.
I asked the publisher if a book release and movie release date has been set and the official word is that Algonquin plans to publish the movie tie-in edition to coincide with the release date, which is currently slated for Spring 2011.
The movie filming and “The RPattz Effect” has sparked a lot of renewed interest in this literary gem. Just yesterday, Algonquin Books announced that Water for Elephants was back on the New York Times Best Seller List at #12. This is an amazing accomplishment for a book that first published four years ago!
