CINEDIGM TO DISRIBUTE 'LIFE' IN US






CINEDIGM ACQUIRES ALL U.S. RIGHTS TO WORLD RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILMMAKER ANTON CORBIJN’S “LIFE,” ELEGANT STUDY OF COMPLEX BOND BETWEEN PHOTOGRAPHER AND LEGENDARY STAR-IN-THE-MAKING JAMES DEAN.


Full press release:
Following a critically praised premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) has acquired all U.S. distribution rights to Anton Corbijn’s LIFE, starring Dane DeHaan (Life After Beth; Kill Your Darlings; Place Beyond The Pines), Robert Pattinson (Twilight, Cosmopolis, Maps To The Stars), and Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Sexy Beast, Schindler’s List ). The film was produced by Iain Canning’s See-Saw Films (King’s Speech, Slow West), and is the second project in an ongoing collaboration between Corbijn and Canning, following their work together on Control. The script was written by Luke Davies (Candy, Lion).

Corbijn’s follow-up to A Most Wanted Man, LIFE captures the nuances and complexities of the relationship between photographer and subject in a way rarely seen or understood by someone outside the business. In a nod to Corbijn’s own past experience, the film is told from the perspective of the Life photographer Dennis Stock (played by Pattinson) who meets and profiles Dean (DeHaan) for the magazine, turning out some of Dean’s most iconic photographs.

LIFE will open with a theatrical, digital and television VOD release beginning in Fall 2015.

“Life gorgeously chronicles the back story behind the 1955 photo spread that brought moody young heartthrobJames Dean to the attention of the American public seven months before his death-,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice President of Acquisitions. “Beautiful to look at, powerful to experience, Life, using an Eisenhower-era America as prism, brilliantly presages America’s coming celebrity culture.”
