I can’t wait for this! Had this photo-book of James Dean photographed by Dennis Stock for like about eight years now and now they are making it into a film. Stock took that Iconice shot of Dean in a damp and rainy day at Time Square. James Dean has been my idol since I was about 12 years old when I first saw Giant, East of Eden and Rebel Without A Cause, and i’ve been waiting for a feature film about him and his life (Besides the James Franco TV Movie). Seeing him come to life again on-screen played by Dane Dehaan (A really good actor) is very exciting.
Life, which is the title of the movie, is basically about Life Magazine hiring photographer Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) to shoot the enigmatic James Dean (Dane Dehaan). In the photo-book Stock follows Dean back to his hometown of Fairmount Indiana, to his life in New York City, and his filming of Rebel Without A Cause in Los Angeles.
