Perhaps this will comfort Robert Pattinson.
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.
