Slated for release sometime next year, LIFE is centered on the relationship between Life Magazine photographer DENNIS STOCK and iconic actor JAMES DEAN. Assigned by the magazine to shoot the rising young actor just prior to the release of EAST OF EDEN, STOCK became close friends with DEAN as they traveled together from Los Angeles to New York to Indiana (DEAN’S childhood home). Set in the 1950’s, the film features portrayals of such show-biz notables as JACK WARNER, JUDY GARLAND, ELIA KAZAN, PIER ANGELI and EARTH KITT.
Directed by ANTON CORBIJN from a screenplay by LUKE DAVIES, LIFE stars ROBERT PATTINSON as STOCK and DANE DeHAAN as DEAN.
In town this week to promote his new film, LIFE WITHOUT BETH, DeHAAN took a moment to talk about playing JAMES DEAN, one of his favorite actors. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
