Robert Pattinson Gets "Life" Sentence, Signs on for New Movie

by at . Comments

Perhaps this will comfort Robert Pattinson.

The actor, who is allegedly furious that he was passed over for Christian Grey in favor of Charlie Hunnam, has signed on for Life.

The film will be directed by Anton Corbijn and tell the tale of a real-life friendship between James Dean (to be played by Dane DeHaan) and Pattinson's Dennis Stock.

Stock was a young photographer who worked for Life Magazine and got close to the famous big screen star back in the day when assigned to shoot him for a 1955 spread.

Look for the movie to chronicle his journey with Dean as the acquaintances travel across the country together. Life is scheduled to begin shooting in early 2014, but no release date has been announced yet.

Pattinson, meanwhile, is busy these days making out with Mia Wasikowska wrapping up filming on Maps to the Stars.

robert pattinson is james dean incognito- he is really a rebel-who does what he wants-he has james dean qualities-many of them- but i think the role of dennis stock is a great role for robert pattinson- to be at the other end of the camera for a change-and to see james dean thru his lens is going to be robert pattinsons best film yet. he idolized and copied james deans style- james dean the icon- robert pattinson-the icon

He was not furious to be passed up for the role of Christian Grey, he was actually the first choice as tweeted by someone in EL James camp. Get your facts straight,most people know he was first choice, since the books are inspired by him.

I hate any reference to my name. I wish people would just completely invent a new one.
