Robert Pattinson Set to Star in Flick About James Dean--But His Role Might Surprise You
Yet another movie about legendary film actor James Dean is in the works, and this one is set to star Robert Pattinson. But get this--the smoldering “Twilight” heartthrob isn’t playing Dean. He’s co-starring as one of his friends instead.
Dane DeHaan will star as Dean and Pattinson will play a photographer named Dennis Stock. The movie depicts the two men’s real-life friendship. They became acquainted when Stock was assigned to photograph Dean during a cross-country trip.
In fact, Stock was the photographer who took the iconic picture of the “Giant” and “Rebel Without A Cause” star walking through New York’s Times Square in a long overcoat, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.
The movie is called “Life” and it’s set to begin production in early 2014.
