Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson are rebels with a cause: namely, the upcoming film "Life," about the friendship between James Dean and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, DeHaan will star as Dean, and Pattinson will play Stock, the young photographer who shot now-iconic images of a pre-"East of Eden" Dean as they traveled across the country.

DeHaan's upcoming films include the Beat Generation indie "Kill Your Darlings," the true-crime thriller "Devil's Knot," and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Still busy in the afterglow of his "Twilight" superstardom, Pattinson just wrapped filming on David Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars."

From director Anton Corbijn ("The American"), "Life" is expected to shoot in early 2014.
