Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst in new images from On The Road
The upcoming film ON THE ROAD, which is based on the novel by Jack Kerouac, will be rolling into theaters sometime this year (there’s still no release date for the United States). So to keep fans interested, a few more photos have been released. Below you can see some photos of Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Viggo Mortensen, Sam Riley and Kirsten Dunst. That’s just a short list of the huge star-studded cast that also includes: Tom Sturridge, Amy Adams, Alice Braga, Steve Buscemi, Elisabeth Moss, Danny Morgan and Terrence Howard. The film has been written by Jose Rivera and is being directed by Walter Salles and there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing this film featured at the Cannes Film Festival.
If you’ve ever read Kerouac then you know how hard it is to explain one of his books, but this film has been described as follows, “Just after his father’s death, Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.”
This will be one of the big films for Kristen Stewart since her TWILIGHT films and it’ll be nice to see her in a different light. Fans of Kristen Stewart will most likely be relieved that she’s getting back to her independent film roots after her stint as the love-struck, mouth-breathing Bella Swan. Kristen Stewart can be seen next in SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN alongside Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth on June 1, 2012. (official website)
