Watch: Photographer Robert Pattinson Brings 'Life' to James Dean in New Trailer
Robert Pattinson continues to explore and expand his acting abilities post-“Twilight” by taking on LIFE photographer Dennis Stock, who gave the world candid photographs of the late actor James Dean, including his most iconic image in a rain-drenched New York. “Life” is about the friendship between the “East of Eden” actor and the photographer as they travel cross-country and promises to be an intimate portrait of these two figures.
The trailer features DeHaan as the perpetually youthful Dean, the original cinematic rebel whose life was cut short in a tragic car accident. Nonetheless, Dean managed to leave behind an impressive filmography and his death thrust him into the spotlight as a legend. The trailer sheds some light into Dean’s life, while also telling the story of a short friendship.
