I have been lucky to make new twilight friends in the Portland area and even some worldwide. My Twi friend Karen in Australia just shared this article with me. I also included the information to read the whole article.
Robert Pattinson just might be in the movie business for the long term. The British actor, who was very pale in five Twilight movies and got hysterically screamed at by fans every time he went to a premiere, has begun to assemble a genuine second act in his career. He’s already played the lead in David Cronenberg’s Don DeLillo adaptation Cosmopolis (pictured), and in June he co-stars with Guy Pearce in David Michod’s The Rover, the writer/director’s follow-up to Animal Kingdom. Now Pattinson is starring in a movie from Dutch rock photographer turned filmmaker Anton Corbijn (Control), although not in the role you would expect.
Life is the story of the friendship between 1950s teen icon James Dean (Rebel Without a Cause) and photographer Dennis Stock, and Pattison will play Stock, not Dean. The much-praised Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines) portrays the young actor, whose legend was cemented by his death at the age of 24 in a 1955 automobile accident. Stock’s images of Dean helped form his posthumous appeal, and the film’s supporting cast includes Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby) as Stock’s agent, John Morris, and Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3).
