New On The Road Pictures Online
You hip to the Beat, daddio?

04 February 2011  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Comme Au Cinema

Here's a treat for anyone who has ever dreamed of donning a black turtleneck and sparking up a cigarette in a dingy basement coffee bar: On The Road is finally approaching screens, with a release date pencilled in for later this year (in the US, at least) and the first pictures now online.

These show Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, the story's narrator; Kristen Stewart as Marylou and Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty. Walter Salles is directing, and the film also stars Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams and Steve Buscemi.

Jack Kerouac's book is a touchstone of the Beat movement and proved a huge influence on everyone from Bob Dylan to Hunter S. Thompson, but it's taken its own sweet time getting to the screen. Gus Van Sant was planning to tackle it for a long time, before the rights were picked up by Francis Ford Coppola. He hired Walter Salles after seeing The Motorcycle Diaries and realising that this man knew how to handle cool. Let's hope, for the sake of would-be rebels everywhere, that he captures the book's unique appeal.

RE: New On The Road Pictures Online
Can all those who are dissing Kristen Stewart because of Twilight just shup up? Yes she was a bit mopey in New Moon but if you see her in films like Adventureland and even Into the Wild, she can act. As for On the Road, haven't read the book (I will do) and looking forward to this new film by Walter Salles as someone who loves The Motorcycle Diaries. PS K.S.-haters, shut up, shut up, etc. More

On The Road is my favourite book and I have to say I'm so excited to see it on the big screen. Also a bit hesitant to see Stewart in such an iconic story but she doesn't have a big role and, this isn't Twilight so maybe she'll be good. It's great to have Walter Salles at the helm; if The Motorcycle Diaries is anything to go by then the film will look fantastic, if for nothing else. More

Got very excited when I first heard about the film. Then they cast Kristen Stewart. She can't act and will therefore ruin this film. What a shame, it had such potential. More

Tried reading the book once. Couldn't get into it. Hope it's not the same with the film. It's a nice pic and it's good to see Sam Riley making some waves. More
