Even though all the media has been reporting about Kristen Stewart’s negotiations for the upcoming Universal film SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN, her other project ON THE ROAD hasn’t been getting as much attention. The film is based on the book by famous beatnik Jack Kerouac and follows a young man who sets off to travel America via road and railways. Yep, it’s really that simple of a plot line. ON THE ROAD is being directed by Walter Salles and stars: Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Alice Braga and Steve Buscemi. It will be released in theaters sometime this year but there is still no set date.
I know this film is a big deal for a lot of Kerouac fans because some of them look at his novel On The Road as like a guidebook or something. Whatever floats your boat I guess. To me, Kerouac is just someone who has a tough time forming a proper sentence.
