Anton Corbjin to Direct James Dean Biopic
Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbjin is set to direct a new biopic on the early career of actor James Dean, focusing in particular on his friendship and working relationship with photographer Dennis Stock. The film is set before the premiere of East of Eden, in 1955, and follows Stock as he photographs Dean in a number of cities for a Life Magazine commission. The film itself will also be titled, Life, and is scripted by Luke Davies (Candy). Production will commence early 2014.
