Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson cast in Life

Robert Pattinson will star as a magazine photographer in 'Life'

The 'Twilight Saga' actor will appear as Dennis Stock in the new movie - based on a true story - which looks at the cameraman's friendship with actor James Dean.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert will star opposite Dane DeHaan as the Life magazine photographer, and work on the film is expected to start in 2014.

The real-life pair met shortly before James rose to fame with movies like 'East of Eden' and 'Rebel Without a Cause', and Dennis took several iconic photographs of the legendary actor shortly before he became a star.

He has also been rumoured to be set for 'Queen of the Desert', which will tell the story of Gertrude Bell and T.E. Lawrence.

However, would-be co-star Naomi Watts has admitted she isn't sure when the Werner Herzog will start filming.

She said: ''We'll wait and see. He's a director I'm completely in awe of. He's a wonderful filmmaker and documentarian. It's a fantastic character, great story.

''I'm not sure when it's going to take place yet; there's been so much travel, as well, and I've got little kids, so we'll see if it happens later this year or next year.''
