Edward Ashley ("In The Heart Of The Sea") has joined the cast of James Gray's historical adventure "The Lost City of Z" which also stars Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, Tom Holland and Charlie Hunnam.

Ashley will play Arthur Manley, a young corporal who accompanied Fawcett on his apparently doomed expedition. Filming is now underway in Northern Ireland and Colombia ahead of a 2016 release.

Long before he became a household name, James Dean was little more than an aspiring actor in the late ’40s and early ’50s, struggling to make ends meet. What many of his admirers don’t know, however, is how influential photographer Dennis Stock proved in Dean’s trajectory from photogenic character actor to bona fide superstar, and it’s an arc that will underpin Anton Corbijn’s upcoming biopic, Life.

For a minute there, it appeared that photographer turned feature film director Anton Corbijn was going to retire. He’d made three terrific indie movies, the black and white Joy Division/Ian Curtis movie “Control,” the awesome Bergman-esque assassin thriller “The American” with George Clooney and the slow-burn war-on-terror thriller “A Most Wanted Man” with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. He’d actually contemplated it for a minute, but apparently after his last feature with Hoffman, Corbijn has found himself more comfortable behind the camera and with more to say (he spoke more about rediscovering his mojo in our interview from last year).

Robert Pattinson will take the lead role of an extraterrestrial astronaut in Claire Denis' upcoming sci-fi film, Screen Daily reports. The yet-to-be-titled film, set in outer space, is being written by Denis, British novelist Zadie Smith and Smith's writer husband Nick Laird.

This is the latest idiosyncratic casting choice from Pattinson, who's also starring in Harmony Korine's Miami-set revenge thriller, "The Trap," and he will next be seen in Anton Corbijn's 1950s Americana ode "Life" as James Dean's friend and photographer Dennis Stock.
