On Thursday, Feb. 20, Life will be filming at 33 Maitland Street in Toronto, all day.

Directed by Anton Corbijn, Life is based on the true story of the friendship that developed between actor James Dean, played by Dane DeHaan, and photojournalist Dennis Stock (Pattinson) as they traveled across America.

  1. Hi Michelle, the weather may be miserable so it’s very doubtful for me. Then, there’s also my job that’s in the way! I’m only a few minutes away so I could just pop over during my lunch break. My window of Rob-opportunity is very, very small.

  2. Hey Michelle, I wish you lots of luck for a cute meet with Rob. It will be tough to get through Dean. Please be sure to share your onset experience.

  3. I so hope I get to visit a set location this time. I live so close and missed it the past few times. Pls. post locations like you did for the 20th of Feb
