Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan to Lead LIFE
Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan are set to portray two legends in the upcoming film LIFE.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, DeHaan will take on the role of James Dean, while Robert Pattinson will play LIFE magazine photographer Dennis Stock in the film which chronicles their long-time friendship. Anton Corbijn will direct. SHAME and THE KING SPEECH's Iain Canning will produce.
According to the report: "Stock was a young photographer working for the Magnum agency when he received an assignment that changed his life: to shoot a free-spirited actor named James Dean.
The gig became a personal journey for both as they traveled from L.A. to New York to Indiana. During the trip, Stock captured now-iconic images of the actor before he was launched to stardom with East of Eden (1955)."
Pattinson is best known for starring in THE TWILIGHT SAGA. He most recently signed on for the upcoming films HOLD ON TO ME, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, and MISSION: BLACKLIST. Pattinson can next be seen in THE ROVER, and MAPS TO THE STARS.
DeHaan recently made a name for himself by starring in such films as CHRONICLE, LAWLESS, LINCOLN, and THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. He can next be seen opposite Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2.
