Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan To Star In Anton Corbijn’s ‘Life’; About James Dean & Photographer Dennis Stock
THR bring word that Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan are teaming up to star in ‘Life,’ the true story about the friendship between James Dean and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock. DeHaan will bring Dean to life while Pattinson will portray Stock in the movie being directed by Anton Corbijn. Iain Canning, who produced the Oscar-winning drama ‘The King’s Speech’ and the acclaimed Steve McQueen/Michael Fassbender drama ‘Shame,’ is producing ‘Life’ with his See-Saw Films partner, Emile Sherman.
Dennis 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).
A24 send word that they’ve acquired David Michôd’s (Animal Kingdom) latest film ‘The Rover’ for theatrical release in the US. The slow-burn thriller stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson and is set in the Australian desert in a dangerous and damaged near future. The film was written by Michôd and based on a story conceived by Michôd and Joel Edgerton. The film also co-stars Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones and Susan Prior. Celebrated Argentinean filmmaker Natsha Braier acted as Director of Photography and Michôd also teamed up again with ‘Animal Kingdom’ Production Designer, Jo Ford.
‘The Rover’ is set in a world ten years following the collapse of the western economic system, where Australia’s mineral resources have drawn the desperados and dangerous to its shores. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce), who travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind the wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him.
