'Life' Begins Principal Photography, Adds Ben Kingsley to Cast

Director Anton Corbijn has begun principal photography on LIFE in Toronto, produced by See-Saw Films and First Generation Films. FilmNation is handling international sales.

The film is inspired by the true story of a friendship that developed between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) and actor James Dean (Dane DeHaan) when Stock was commissioned to photograph the actor for Life magazine in 1955.

Ben Kingsley and Alessandra Mastronardi co-star.

The creative team includes director of photography Charlotte Bruus Christensen (THE HUNT), production designer Anastasia Masaro (THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS), costume designer Gersha Phillips (HOUSE OF CARDS), and editor Nick Fenton (THE DOUBLE).
