First look at Robert Pattinson in brand new film, “Life”!


Entertainment Weekly has published the first official image from Robert Pattinson’s upcoming film, Life. Robert plays Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock, who, in 1955, took James Dean on a road trip from Los Angeles to New York to Dean’s hometown of Fairmont, Indiana, to photograph the young star in environments that shaped his unique character and style. The film will follow that memorable trip.

In addition to Rob, Life also stars Ben Kingsley and Dane DeHaan as James Dean himself. You might recognize DeHaan from his role alongside Daniel Radcliffe in Kill Your Darlings.

The film is directed by Anton Corbijn, who explained why he selected Rob and DeHaan for their roles, saying,

“Rob has an intensity that I think Dennis would have. When I see Rob, I see an inner turmoil that is great for the role. … And Dane is really interesting. He has a beautiful face, but it’s a hard face to grasp. It’s hard to see how Dane reads sometimes, and the same thing goes for James Dean.”

Life is slated to hit theaters in 2015. Are you excited to find out more about Rob’s upcoming role? Let us know in the comments!
