Anton Corbijn Talks About Life - Mentions 2015 Release

Life wasn’t part of the TIFF announcement this morning, is there potential for a 2014 release? 

No, that’ll be 2015. We haven’t locked picture yet. We still have two more months of sound and [potential] pick-up shoots.

In your background in photography, you’ve photographed numerous icons. Your first film, Control, was a portrait of the iconic Ian Curtis (singer for Joy Division), who died very young. I guess now we’ve confirmed that next year, you have a film that involves James Dean (to be played by Dane DeHaan) in Life. Who also died very young. Is it more difficult to capture an iconic photograph of an individual in life, or to tell their story in death? 

I’m flattered that people think my pictures are iconic. That’s not what I set out to be. A lot of people that I worked with in the 70s and 80s were not very well known people, but they became [well known] later. So I’ve not deliberately sought icons. As far as making films for Ian Curtis and James Dean, that is, of course, is very deliberate. Ian Curtis was someone that I knew and I moved to England to make it because I wanted to make it. It was a personal project. And, also, I thought there was a good love story there (between Sam Riley and Samantha Morton).

With Life it’s first and foremost a story about a photographer, Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), who profiled James Dean (DeHaan). So it’s the story of a photographer and their subject. As a photographer that story interested me: studying the power balance between a photographer and their subject. You know, who influences who? The James Dean portion of the story wasn’t my interest. In fact I’d turned down a straight James Dean project once before.

New Rob Interview With Szeretettel Hollywoodból (Full Interview) + Translation

ETA: Added translation under the video

Previews of this interview were posted here with original audio

When this photo was taken, Robert Pattinson was skeptical that he’d ever become someone. He played music and acted too, but after his supporting role in Harry Potter, he hadn’t gotten any roles for years. Then there was a casting, and Kristen Stewart was so hung up on this dreamy-eyed British boy, that the rest of his story couldn’t be told until Twilight. Then came Bel Ami with Uma Thurman, Water For Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, Remember Me with Pierce Brosnan, then there were three movies, starring Robert Pattinson himself, in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

Anikó Návai: This is your second time in Cannes…

Robert Pattinson: Third actually.

AN: So now you’re getting an honorary citizenship here, in Cannes. How is Cannes for you?

RP: I love Cannes. Probably because when I came here with Cosmopolis I had such a great experience. Every movie I do I wish would end up here. I think this is what I like about cinema. Every movie is not just a movie, it’s not just entertainment, it’s having an experience and you come out of it, you’ll feel different about life and about cinema as well. And I think this is the only festival out there, that is mainly about the art of film that every other festival doesn’t really showcase.

AN: Is it easier or is it more difficult, life after Twilight?

RP: Uhm, I don’t know. It’s kind of easier to not have to basically do a movie. I was, like, constantly working on Twilight, so whenever I had a gap in between the two Twilight movies, I had to fit something else in, and I had no time to prepare for it and stuff. And now I kind of have that time to really decide what you wanna do and it does make things a little bit easier.

AN: And the call comes in and David Michod said that he wanted you to do The Rover with Guy Pierce who didn’t know you and you didn’t know them, and he’s kind of afraid and other actors want this role too. How do you deal with this?

RP: I mean, I knew.. I hate auditioning. I mean I may have done 3 auditions since Twilight, because I’ve always been so bad at it.
