I am quite thankful to Anton Corbijn who made countless amazing music videos. Honestly, I wouldnt even know where to begin. Hes collaborated with everyone from Depeche Mode to Nirvana to Johnny Cash. The man has a spectacular vision. I was elated to hear that he broke out into the film world back in 2007 with CONTROL, the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division. A great film if youve never seen it. THE AMERICAN starring George Clooney was his last directorial effort.

His latest A MOST WANTED MAN starring the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Willem Dafoe, and Daniel Brhl was most recently screened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The director is currently filming on LIFE with Robert Pattinson, Dane DeHaan, and Ben Kinglsey.

The story centers on, Dennis Stock (Pattinson), who working at the Magnum Photos Agency get an assignment to shoot rising Hollywood star James Dean (DeHaan), before the release of East of Eden. Friendship developed between them during the assignment, as the pair traveled from Los Angeles to New York to Indiana. Kingsley plays the role of Jack Warner, studio head and driving force behind the building ofyou guessed itWarner Brothers.

In the first still from the film, we see DeHaan glaring in the backseat of a car as Dean with Pattinson as Stock in the front. DeHaan is certainly interesting casting for the role of the iconic actor.

Corbijn said this of the casting decision:

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 its a hard face to grasp. Its hard to see how Dane reads sometimes, and the same thing goes for James Dean.

Take a look at the photo below. Filming should be complete at the end of this month.

DeHaan really looks the part. And he also looks like DiCaprio a bit in the photo.

What's funny is that James Franco played James Dean and Harry Osborne and now DeHaan is doing the exact same thing.

A good catch indeed. Funny how these connections become more prevalent as the years go by. "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" is practically becoming a bygone era with all the others that exist now.
