Young Americans [originally titled ‘College Republicans‘] is a film that will reunite actors Dane DeHaan, Daniel Radcliffe and Kill Your Darlingsdirector John Krokidas.

The screenplay, by Wes Jones, topped the 2010 Black List [a list featuring the best un-produced screenplays].

The script is based on a true story from 1973 centred around Karl Rove. Rove, claimed to be played by DeHaan, runs a campaign for national College Republican Chairman. Under the guidance of his campaign manager Lee Atwater, supposedly Radcliffe, Rove’s campaign is far from clean.Their campaign includes a wild road trip intended to drum up support. Despite all the political machinations, however, the focus is really on the friendship between the two, and that’s something that Radcliffe and DeHaan could do a lot with.” [from entertainmentwise.com]

From an interview with Daniel Radcliffe:
“If you had a dream project – if there was a movie of any size or scale – whatever – that you could do, what would it be?”

Radcliffe: “Well at the moment the project that I really want to do is called College Republicans. Hopefully, it would be with myself and Dane DeHaan and John Krokidas who directed Kill Your Darlings. And we’d all sort of get to work together again. So hopefully – at the moment, like that’s my dream project. ‘Cause it’s been up and down for a few years now in terms of if we’re gonna get it done. So, at the moment, that’s my dream” [http://youtu.be/MrI5iBh-3dM?t=7m12s]

Encouraged by John Krokidas via twitter (@krokasaurusrex), we are making this petition to say we would love for this film to get made. We adored Dan, Dane & John’s work in Kill Your Darlings and we very much want to see more from them.

Dane DeHaan during LIFE press conference (Berlinale 2015): LIFE movie review from Dane fan who got to see it

“LIFE” through the eyes of a fan: a review of the movie from Dane-DeHaan.org’s visitor

Our website’s visitor tumblr user gofuckupyourmind got to see “Life” at the Berlinale International 2015 Film Festival. She was very kind to share her review, as well as some of photos of Dane taken by her during the festival. Please read the review below, and don’t forget to check her tumblr page!

I just go to watch the film without any expectations. I just want it to surprise me.
I heard from the film that Robert Pattionson should play the leading role, but after watching it I have to say that Dane plays a similarly important part!
My first thought after hearing that Dane plays James Dean was “Is he he right person to play Dean??”
And after whatching the movie I can say YES HE IS!
It was great! The character is a misunderstood,mysterious, rebellious person. And this is a perfect character for Dane to play! Cause he seems to love it and if we’re honest we love it too.
During the movie you understand more and more why he think like he does and why he acts like he does. You will understand what made James Dean to this icon he is today.
Summing up: If you liked ‘Kill your Darlings’ (I love it!) you have to watch this movie(It’s kind of similar sort of film)! If it come out in your country go to the cinema and watch it! Dane is so fantastic. And you learn more about James Dean and his short life aswell.


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

Two Lovers and A Bear starring Dane DeHaan & Tatiana Maslany will be filmed both in Ontario and Iqaluit later this spring

Auditions are being held in Iqaluit this week for an independent movie that will be filmed both in Ontario and Iqaluit later this spring.

Ellen Hamilton, a co-producer on Two Lovers and A Bear, says the film will star Tatiana Maslany from the TV show Orphan Black and Dane DeHaan, a critically acclaimed up-and-comer. It has a budget of nearly $10 million.

The movie is about the love between a white man and a woman who is half-white, half-Inuk. It has magical elements such as a talking polar bear.

The film also touches on some of the painful parts of recent Inuit history. Roselynn Akulukjuk, the movie’s third assistant director, says one scene set in an abandoned military base is particularly touching.

“It shows what Inuit went through, like pictures of Inuit going to residential schools or the dogs being killed,” she says.

Director Kim Nguyen’s previous film War Witch was nominated for an Academy Award for foreign-language film.

Auditions for film roles begin on Friday.

Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson attend LIFE screening during Berlinale 2015

Expressandstar’s new article mentions “LIFE” and the UK release date

Robert Pattinson has joked it was tortuous being on the other side of the lens for his new movie, Life.

The former Twilight star plays photographer Dennis Stock in Anton Corbijn’s film, which chronicles the friendship between him and Hollywood actor James Dean (played by Dane DeHaan) after they worked together on a shoot for Life magazine.

“I do feel like being a paparazzi for a second – I do empathise with their plight,” the 28-year-old actor quipped. “I was filled with self-loathing, wretchedness – I wanted to really kind of harm myself at the end of every day.”

Rob attended the film’s premiere at the Berlin Film Festival with co-star Dane at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. Dane said: “It’s a movie about two artists who get to know each other through working with each other, and I feel that’s what we did on this film.”

Since leaving his Twilight role of vampire Edward Cullen, Rob has starred in dystopian thriller The Rover and David Cronenberg’s dark drama Maps To The Stars. He will be seen in Werner Herzog’s upcoming drama Queen Of The Desert alongside Nicole Kidman and James Franco.

He said of his loyal followers: “You just hope people enjoy every week that you do. I’m doing stuff that’s all very different so it’s quite surprising when I see them enjoying this, The Rover and stuff like that.”

Life will be released in UK cinemas on September 25.

Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn: The Amazing Spider-man 3 is going to happen?

‘Sinister Six’ Delayed Following Sony & Marvel’s Spider-Man Deal

Fanboys and -girls around the globe are no doubt still celebrating last night’s surprising announcement that Sony and Marvel would partner to produce new Spider-Man films, and integrate the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But what does that mean for what was to be Sony’s first “Amazing Spider-Man” spinoff, “Sinister Six”?

According to the Wall Street Journal, “Sinister Six” will remain in development at Sony, but it’s been delayed indefinitely. WSJ writes that the studio is “rethinking” its plan for the flick, and it has been pulled from its initial release date of November 11, 2016.

While that’s never a good sign for a movie, WSJ’s report indicates that Sony still wants to move forward with the film, and so far, Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”) is still on board to write and direct. Still, not knowing when the movie may come out may cause some of “Sinister”‘s high-profile cast members — including Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans, and Dane DeHaan — to bolt from the project, putting it in even more uncertain waters.

Letting go of the flick might be in Sony’s best interest, since one of the driving forces behind its agreement to the Marvel partnership was that the “Amazing Spider-Man” films under-performed; gathering together a group of lesser-known villains from that same universe into a different movie may not have worked out, either. Still, nothing is set in stone yet, and Marvel’s production company is known for building hits around unlikely protagonists (see: “Guardians of the Galaxy”).

Stay tuned.

Dane DeHaan as James Dean in LIFE; Highlights from recent "LIFE" reviews with emphasis on Dane's performance

Highlights from recent “LIFE” reviews with emphasis on Dane’s performance

“Life” has just had its worldwide premiere in Berline during the 2015 Berlinale international film festival. Below you can find the collection of some of the biggest magazines and websites reviews. I included the links to original (full) articles, as well as posted the highlights related to Dane and his performance. Warning: some of the reviews may contain spoilers. Also please understand that not every article praises Dane, but I decided to collect all the opinions.

Berlin Review: Anton Corbijn’s ‘Life’ is a Bland James Dean Biopic Starring Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson
Grade: C+
On Dane: DeHaan, despite his best efforts, doesn’t exactly resemble the actor, and his performance also registers as caricature: He nails the voice and posture but only to the level of a well-honed impersonation. The disconnect is all the more evident in DeHaan’s rapport with Pattinson.

Dane DeHaan is a magnetic James Dean in Anton Corbijn’s elegant study of the complex bond between star and shutterbug.
On Dane: DeHaan and Pattinson enact this anti-romance beautifully, each man quizzically eyeing the other for leads and clues, while coyly retreating from scrutiny. (…) DeHaan, meanwhile, plays Dean as the more openly flirtatious of the two, a flashier generational companion to his louchely inspired Lucien Carr in 2013’s “Kill Your Darlings.”
While he’s far from the first to suggest a distinct fluidity to the star’s sexuality, DeHaan’s is nonetheless a witty, inventive interpretation, exaggerating Dean’s breathy vocal mannerisms and relaxed body language to conjure an aura of studied, open-to-all sensuality. (…) Though he’s considerably aided by immaculate costuming and hairstyling, DeHaan doesn’t look much like his subject; his performance glides on its own brand of quicksilver intensity.

On Dane: DeHaan method acts his way into the persona of a consummate method actor whose cool persona was partly a protective screen; his Dean is very much in the mould of the Dean remembered by his East Of Eden co-star Lois Smith, who once said: “He was a sweet, rustic person, but there was also this suspicious, taut, guarded young man

The Hollywood Reporter
Dane DeHaan plays James Dean while Robert Pattinson is the LIFE magazine photographer who captured the elusive star in a series of iconic 1955 portraits.
On Dane: [The] problem [of the movie being inauthentic] starts with DeHaan’s take on Dean, which seems more studied than inhabited, from the hunched shoulders and drowsy eyes to the sleepy-cool mumble. The performance becomes more effective as he gradually exposes a core of wounded vulnerability. But from Dean’s first appearance, the characterization struggles to avoid the trap of impersonation. DeHaan is solid in [the scene where James opens up during the Indiana trip] and later, when James lets down his defenses and reveals his solitude. And yet the film mostly grasps for unearned emotions.

The Playlist
Berlin Review: Anton Corbijn’s ‘Life’ Starring Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan
Grade: C+ / B-
On Dane: Neither Pattinson nor DeHaan, promising as they may be, have that many miles on the clock yet, and there’s a hesitance in the work of both actors. DeHaan actually benefits from the ostensibly thankless task of playing Dean (and from certain angles at certain times he looks uncannily like him), who at least has a fully-fledged persona he can play into or try to subvert (seldom the latter).

Boston Herald
LIFE is the historically rigorous true story of a brief friendship between budding star James Dean just as he was about to explode in global consciousness as the tormented son in EAST OF EDEN
On Dane: DeHaan doesn’t exactly resemble Dean so much as inhabit his Fifties hipster lingo, attitude and speech patterns.

On Dane: Now, regrettably, to Corbijn’s one false note, and it’s kind of a big one: the casting of Dane DeHaan, who, let’s face it, is the last person on earth you’d expect to play James Dean. He just doesn’t have the conventional movie star good looks to be believable in that era. (To his credit, he has a unique look, which is perhaps why he’s had many great roles.) DeHaan’s Deanisms – that southern drawl, that forlorn stroll – seem almost comically overboard, verging on a costume party performance. Still, at least he didn’t overdo Dean’s trademark squinty eyes (a key part to any drunken costume party impersonation). (…) Replace DeHaan with a more apt actor (is James Franco too obvious?) and you’ve got a really great movie.

Robert Pattinson impresses in this stylish drama about the relationship between celebrity and the media.
On Dane: (…)Dennis Stock, outshines Dane DeHaan’s over-baked rendering of James Dean, although the latter is poignant enough to enliven this tale of men helping each other to take a leap into greatness. (…) Dane DeHaan ratchets up Dean’s rhythmic speech and sounds permanently like a performance poet reading Allan Ginsberg. His small cherubic face is worlds away from the big handsome mug of history. His awkward mannerisms morph beautifully into charm, still the array of affectations jar.

James Dean, although the lead-star of only three films, concreted himself as one of the cinema’s golden age legends quite quickly in the 1950’s – mainly through his unconventional approach to Hollywood’s rules – this is, all before his premature death quite soon later.
Grade: 3/5 stars
On Dane: For Dehaan, the performance, both visually and in terms of acting is undeniably suited as he resonates Dean’s moody and unique approach, showing him as a person, not merely an icon.

There is plenty of focus but little flash in Anton Corbijn’s Life (2015), a snapshot of one of cinema’s most enduring icons.
Grade: 3/5 stars
On Dane: Owen Pallett’s jazz-infused score and Corbijn’s sharp, conservative framing capture the essence of a decade in which America was shifting towards a more liberal perspective on life and the arts. DeHaan and Pattinson are also both terrific, at once elegant and charismatic, yet equally uncomfortable in the skins they inhabit. Dean’s ability to mirror the dilemmas of a disenfranchised generation of youngster made him a star and whilst DeHaan’s performance is a little over-exaggerated, he still manages to capture that sense of relatable despondency.

Berlinale 2015: Life Review
Grade: 4/5 stars
On Dane: To begin with, Jimmy Dean, played by an alluring Dane DeHaan, is somewhat difficult to connect with, at arms length with the media, and reluctant for Stock to complete his photo-essay on the rising star for Life Magazine. (…) Given the undeniable charm and charisma of Pattinson, there was always the fear that he would steal the show from his counterpart, and be perceived as the star. However such is his understated, subtle turn, it allows DeHaan to take on that very role, which, given he’s playing James Dean, simply has to be the case.

Life: ‘fascinating’
Grade: 4/5 stars
On Dane: From the first scene of Anton Corbijn’s Life, DeHaan gives us very much his own Dean, and he’s immediately rather fascinating. The resemblance is marginal – if anything, he looks more like a young Brad Pitt.
