Ben Kingsley has joined the cast of Anton Corbijn's upcoming James Dean biopic.

Robert Pattinson and Kill Your Darlings' Dane Dehaan are already attached to the project with Dehaan taking on the role of the late movie icon.

Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi has also joined the cast but it has not yet been released which parts she and Kingsley will play.

The film centres on a 1955 road trip that James Dean took with Dennis Stock, a photographer from Life magazine, just months before his death.  Pattinson will play Stock, the man responsible for some of the most iconic images of the Rebel Without a Cause star.
