Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock was given the assignment to profile rising Hollywood star James Dean in the 50s on the eve of his star-making turn in East of Eden. The two developed a friendship during their time together as they traveled from Los Angeles to New York to Dean’s home state of Indiana. Their connection is the primary focus of the upcoming film Life.
Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan play Stock and Dean respectively. Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton round out the cast with A Most Wanted Man director Anton Corbijn helming the biopic flick. Life premiered earlier this year at the Berlin Film Festival and scheduled for theatrical release later this year. Check out the trailer below.
