Kristen Stewart taking a break from Twilight to go On The Road
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Kristen Stewart is set to take on another role that should help movie fans forget about TWILIGHT. She announced to USA Today that she will be playing Marylou in the upcoming film adaptation of the famous Jack Kerouac novel ‘On The Road’. She joins a cast that includes Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarity and Sam Riley as Sal. The film is set in the late 40’s and follows the exploits of two drifters that take a road trip while exploring various themes and theologies. Director Walter Salles is no stranger to road trip films as he directed the underrated THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES.
‘On The Road’ is one of Kerouac’s more infamous novels and has gone through several trials over the years as many directors have tried to get it made. Kerouac has had several of his books get made into high profile movies, so now seems to be the right time to get this one through.
