Director Anton Corbijn’s Life will arrive in select U.S. theaters on December 4. The movie stars Robert Pattinson, and Dane DeHaan as Dennis Stock and James Dean; and documents the period that James Dean and Life photographer Dennis Stock spent together right before Dean exploded onto the movie scene. Corbijn (Control, A Most Wanted Man) called his work with Pattinson and DeHaan a “tremendous experience” and went on to say:
“I cannot wait for the story of Dennis Stock and James Dean, which is at the center of LIFE, to come to an American audience, as it played a part in the permanent cultural changes of the last century within American society and beyond. It was a tremendous experience to work with Rob Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in bringing this story to life, no pun intended, and I’d like to thank Cinedigm for spreading the word, and the visuals.”
Life was released in select European markets earlier this year, and Cinedigm will handle the upcoming U.S distribution.
