Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan are set to star in “Life,” a film about the real life friendship between actor James Dean and Life Magazine photographer Dennis Stock.
Set before Dean’s breakout role in “East of Eden,” Stock (Pattinson) was a young photographer who received an assignment to shoot a free-spirited unknown actor named James Dean (DeHaan).
The pair went on a cross-country journey during which Stock captured now-iconic images of the actor. Luke Davies penned the script, while Anton Corbijn (“The American”) is set to direct.
Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce the $10-15 million project, and shooting begins early next year.
