Tatiana Maslany, Dane DeHaan to Star in Indie Drama ‘Two Lovers and a Bear’

Dane DeHaan to Star in Indie Drama ‘Two Lovers and a Bear’ with Tatiana Maslany

“War Witch” filmmaker Kim Nguyen will direct the indie movie for Max Films

Dane DeHaan (“Chronicle”) and Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) are attached to star in the indie drama “Two Lovers and a Bear,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Kim Nguyen (“War Witch”) is directing the movie, which is a Canadian co-production that features the involvement of Montreal-based company Max Films. Production is scheduled to begin in mid-March as soon as Maslany wraps “Orphan Black.”

Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (DeHaan) and Lucy (Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace.

Maslany will be busy shooting “Orphan Black” through the beginning of March. She recently dropped out of Neil LaBute‘s upcoming play “The Way We Get By,” citing a scheduling conflict with an upcoming film. “Two Lovers and a Bear” is that project, though Maslany is also a finalist for Gareth Edwards’ “Star Wars” spinoff along with Felicity Jones. She next stars alongside Ryan Reynolds in Simon Curtis’ drama “Woman in Gold.”

Maslany is represented by ICM Partners, Magnolia Entertainment and The Characters Talent Agency in Canada.

DeHaan next stars as James Dean opposite Robert Pattinson in Anton Corbijn’s “Life,” and he’ll soon be seen in Justin Chadwick’s romantic drama “Tulip Fever.” He’s represented by CAA and MGMT Entertainment.

Represented by CAA, Nguyen previously directed the critically-acclaimed drama “War Witch,” which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination as well as an award at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.

Dane DeHaan as James Dean in "life": new photo and article from THR

2015 – The Hollywood Reporter


How director Anton Corbijn painstakingly recreated an iconic ’50s-era photo shoot by Scott Roxborough

THE FILM DOESN’T LOOK LIKE A DENNIS STOCK PHOTO, it looks like the world he took photos in. That’s important because a photographer always translates the world into his pictures. The pictures don’t present themselves to you; you have to find the pictures.”
Anton Corbijn is talking about Life, one of the buzziest titles in the Berlin lineup, which tells the backstory behind arguably the most iconic images in Hollywood history: the photos Stock took of James Dean during a road trip on assignment for Life magazine in 1955, just months before the actor’s death.
Starring Dane DeHaan as Dean and Robert Pattinson as Stock, the project seems particularly ideal for Corbijn. Before he started directing, Corbijn was best known as a photographer of rock stars. In 1979, on assignment for music magazine NME, he did a photo shoot with an up-and- coming new British band called Joy Division. Months later, the band’s singer, Ian Curtis, hanged himself. Corbijn’s photos of Curtis, like Stock’s of Dean, became lasting images of a young artist whose life ended early.
Instead of copying Stock’s visual style Stock’s monochromatic in Life, Corbijn went about replicating the world of 1955 America, going so far as to totally rebuild Dean’s apartment in New York. “We had an such an art director who measured everything — the distance from the desk, that sort of thing.”
The moment Stock captured with Dean, and Corbijn re-creates in Life, was a turning point in American culture. “It seems very simple now, but it was revolutionary at the time seeing pictures like this,” says Corbijn. “Pictures like Stock’s symbolized the rebelliousness of the time. The fact that Dean died of course adds to the mystery. You couldn’t take those shots again. If it were today, and we had thousands of paparazzi shots of James Dean, I wonder if it would destroy the mystery?”

And here is the brief movie’s summary from Berlinale’s site:

In 1955, ambitious Hollywood photographer Dennis Stock and the then still unknown James Dean meet at one of Nicholas Ray’s parties. Stock recognises in the young actor, who has just completed filming East of Eden, an extraordinary talent and hopes to further his own career via a series of portraits for “Life” magazine. Newcomer Dean is stressed by studio boss Jack Warner’s demands for him to get on the PR bandwagon for Elia Kazan’s film and goes into hiding in the country. Stock accompanies the camera-shy star to his native ranch in Indiana where he has his roots. Once back in New York, Stock captures the world famous image which keeps the legend alive to this day.
Anton Corbijn is less interested in the life of the idol of a new generation than in the creation of a myth and the role “Life” photographer Dennis Stock’s portraits had in the iconisation of Dean. The meeting of these two young men led to the creation of a series of world famous images of a cult star before he died at the age of just 24. “James Dean haunted Times Square” went on to become one of the most reproduced photograhps of the 20th century.

EXCLUSIVE: Full Dane DeHaan 2013 "Hero" magazine interview. READ NOW

2013 – Hero magazine

The cynical among us might suggest that all you need to become successful actor these days is six-pack and a fierce publicist. It’s surprisingly easy to forget what real acting looks like; the finely-tuned Hollywood conveyor produces new stars daily.

Dane DeHaan, however, is truly one of the new greats. His performances burn themselves into your memory, full of depth and scope, and delivered with apparently no effort at all. In twenty years, look back at the most important films – there is no question about which leading man will have defined them.


JAMES WEST Hey Dane, how you doing?
DANE DEHAAN Good thanks, how are you?

JW I’m actually freezing, I thought I’d come out and sit out on the balcony and it would be nice and relaxing, but it’s cold.
DD Where are you, in London?

JW Yeah. It’s fine, I’ve got my jumper on and I’ve got a cup of tea so I’ll cope. Where are you?
DD I’m in Charleston, South Carolina.

JW Oh wow, what are you doing there, are you working on something?
DD No, my wife is shooting a TV show here, this is where I’m spending my downtime but I leave tonight to start a bunch of Kill Your Darlings premieres.

JW Is it a constant stream of press and interviews for you or do you manage to keep it contained?
DD Well, it comes in spurts but when it happens it’s pretty constant you know? Like Toronto leading into the Metallica premiere was pretty crazy and then I had like a week off. Now I’m going to do all the Kill Your Darlings stuff and that’ll be intense.

JW It’s already getting a massive reception it seems, is that your perception?
DD Yeah, it’s been really exciting. Certainly for a movie of this size, the perception it’s getting is huge in comparison, which is always what you hope for.

JW I just saw they pushed the UK release date back a bit, I think it’s coming out in December here now.
DD Oh yeah, I just saw that too on Twitter.

JW So, how was it working with Daniel Radcliffe, had you met before the film?
DD I met him at my audition. It’s really wonderful, Dan is probably the best friend. I’ve made making movies. Sometimes the movie-making process can be such a fleeting thing that you make these friends for like nine weeks or whatever and then – it’s almost like summer camp – you’re like, “Oh we’re going to keep in touch,” but it kind of never pans out that way. Dan and I really hit it off while making the film and have maintained a friendship since. It wasn’t just that we were both making a movie together and then, you know, you just become friends because of the circumstances you’re thrown into, we’re actually very like-minded people with like-minded interests and goals.

Dane Dehaan, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Filippo Timi attend the Prada Journal Event during the Milan Menswear Fashion Week Fall Winter 2015/2016 on January 19, 2015 in Milan, Italy

Prada Unveils Winners of Journal Awards

MILAN — For once, the spotlight wasn’t on designers, models or other glittery denizens of fashion week’s front row seats. Instead, all eyes were on writers at Monday night’s Prada Journal awards ceremony, where Viola Bellini, Anabel Graff and Miguel Ferrando each received 5,000 euros, or $5,813 at current exchange, for their winning entries in the second edition of the fashion house’s essay competition, organized with publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Editore and Luxottica Group, Prada’s longtime licensing partner.
Another writer, Alejandro Morellon, received a special mention for his submission.
Prada Journal invites writers from around the world to ponder how vision shapes experience; participants then upload their works in any language to a special section on Prada’s Web site. This year’s winning wordsmiths responded to the 2014 prompt: “What are the signs of a changing world? And what situations can we envision? Taking a good look at the details might give us the answer.”
“Both Feltrinelli and Prada are committed to exploring new ideas — we try not to sit on what we have already accomplished,” said Carlo Feltrinelli, chief executive officer of Feltrinelli Group and himself an author. “Instead, we are always scouting for new talent, which is able to re-imagine a different world and which can give us a glimpse of what the future holds.” He noted this year’s submissions were written in 20 languages.
Hosted by actor Dane DeHaan at Prada’s Milan headquarters in Via Fogazzaro, the event began with readings by performers Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller and Filippo Timi, who each brought a different composition to life.
DeHaan expressed professional appreciation for good writing. “New ways of looking: isn’t that what all profound art, architecture, design and writing promote? A compelling work makes us look again, ask questions, think deeper, and push ourselves to interrogate assumptions,” he observed.
The jury included Feltrinelli, Tishani Doshi,Colum McCann and Paolo Giordano, author of “The Solitude of Prime Numbers,” which won Italy’s prestigious Strega prize in 2008.
Giordano explained that the Feltrinelli publishing team sifted through all the entries received, and the jury then examined an estimated 20 essays that made the cut. “Then each member of the jury read them independently and could recommend three,” he said, adding: “What was quite surprising was that we all chose the same ones — the same four, in essence” — hence the decision to award Morellon with a special mention.
He also said the winning entries stood out for their compactness and their high level of writing, as well as their distinctive authorial voices.
Their essays will be included in a downloadable Web anthology released Tuesday. Each entry will appear in its original form, with translations in English and Italian for essays not in those languages.

Dane DeHaan L'Uomo Vogue (Italy): FULL article EXCLUSIVE to dane-dehaan.org

Dane DeHaan: L’Uomo Vogue Italy 2015: full article (translated)

Thanks to my amazing friend Stefano we have a good translation of Dane’s L’Uomo Vogue January 2015 article. Make sure to read it below! For more articles and interviews please visit our press archive section. Please credit Dane-DeHaan.org when reposting the translation.

The good thing about a magnetic and incomprehensible face like his, with those two slightly puffed eyes like ice (although he is very young, in fact he will be 29 this February), that speak more than a thousand words, a little like Brad Pitt (if not Paul Newman), about a contemporary, elegant and effortlessly cool style and a camaleontic talent on the set, might be the fact that he is the most in-demand debuting actor in Hollywood.
The bad thing – if you want to call it like that – might be instead the fact that he receives offers to interpretate mostly characters with ambiguous and strange charm, if not antagonists.
A child prodigy, after graduation at the North Carolina School of Arts, he moved to New York where he debuted at Broadway theatres successfully – although he claims he is not very good for theatrical pieces – winning an Obie Award for acting in ‘The Aliens’ by Annie Baker as Evan Shelmerdine. He was also a gay teenager in ‘In Treatment, which marked his debut on TV; a shy boy bullied in high school and victim of domestic violence who finds out he has super powers and takes revenge in ‘Chronicle’; a moonshiner next to Shia LaBeouf in ‘Lawless’ directed by John Hillcoat and scripted by Nick Cave. And more: intense and touching as Jason, the son of Ryan Gosling in ‘The place beyond the pines’ by Derek Cianfrance; introverted and doomed, stuck between empathy and suffocated anger, in ‘Kill Your Darlings’ next to Daniel Radcliffe; Bad in the shoes of Green Goblin in The Amazing Spider Man 2, but also brilliant like in the black comedy ‘Life After Beth’.
I choose the roles that they offer to me based on the possibility that I have to grow up by interpretating them, I consider them a chance to improve my skills as an actor. The more it seems impossible, the more I want to do it. I like challanges, the same character bores me”, says the Pennsylvania native.
His voice on the phone is relaxed, and kind. He lives in Brooklyn with his beautiful wife, the actress Anna Wood, and his dog. But according to many, his most important challange, which everybody has been talking about for months and which is supposed to be his consacration, is coming out in theatres with ‘Life’ by Anton Corbijn, in which he plays James Dean. The movie focuses on the relationship between the ‘East of Eden’ actor and the photographer who works for ‘Life Dennis Stock’ magazine (a character played by Robert Pattinson). “The story focuses on two specific weeks of James Dean’s life, right before his movie came out. Dennis Stock was told to provide a documentary about his life. So they travelled together from Los Angeles to New York, to visit the Indiana actor. Some of his most popular images were created during those two weeks”, he says. Dane was a little afraid to be compared to such a popular actor at first. “I did not know if the right decision was to accept or not, I thought it was beyond my possibilities. The challenge seemed too big, but maybe that’s why I accepted, to see exactly how far I can go. Before filming the movie, I had four weeks to learn about the character, to read, to watch documentaries and interviews. James Dean is my all time favourite actor, so I wanted to honor him the right way. In order to look like him physically, I had to work out and gain 22 pounds. The hardest thing was to learn to talk like him, he had a very particular accent, as well as his tone. I hope I can show the new generations who James Dean was with this movie.”
Contrary to what happaned to James, who died at the age of 24 in a car accident, instead of car races and a carpe diem concept of life, Dane is part of this generation (and also son of two computer scientists), he likes to use Twitter and play golf. “I find it relaxing, it’s like meditating. It helps me to free my mind, to concentrate and stay with my feet on the ground. I have my own golf kit when I travel and I bring it with me even when I’m working.”
When he doesn’t play golf, he likes to listen to music, which is the passion behind his decison to play in ‘Through The Never’ by Metallica and more recently in the ‘I bet my life’ music video by Imagine Dragons. But he also specifies that he doesn’t have any intention to become a rock star like Jared Leto, Keanu Reeves, Russel Crowe or Kevin Costner. “I play guitar, but nothing more than that. I like the old rock, the Bob Dylan kind, it makes me feel good.
In an era where being a celebrity is everything, Dane lives his life as anti-star: “The good side of it is that it allows me to do what I love.” Among Dane’s next movie projects there is Tulip Fever, which takes place in Amsterdam. The movie is set to be released this Spring.
