Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan have just been tapped to star in Life, the real-life story about James Dean’s friendship with Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock.

DeHaan will star as Dean, and Pattinson will play Stock.

Anton Corbijn is set to direct the film, which will chronicle when Stock was assigned to shoot Dean, and how the two became friends during a cross-country trip.

Stock was the photographer who took the iconic picture of Dean, walking through New York’s Times Square in a long overcoat, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth.

Life will begin production in early 2014.
