On The Road Trailer Arrives
Kerouac adaptation has a promo

Long considered well-nigh impossible to capture properly on screen, the fact that Jack Kerouac’s iconic 1957 tome On The Road is headed for our cinemas will cheer the hearts of  fans everywhere. Chief among those fans, of course, are director Walter Salles, who has been trying to get it made for more than five years, and executive producer Francis Ford Coppola, who has been struggling for 30. But their work is about to pay off! The trailer is now online and you can see it below.

Salles has rounded up an eclectic, talented young cast for the film, including Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Alice Braga and Elizabeth Moss, with support from the likes of Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi.

Road chronicles Sal Paradise (Riley)’s travels and his encounters with the wild Dean Moriarty (Hedlund) and his 16-year-old wife Marylou (Stewart). It’s a coming-of-age story, a look at the times and a romantic drama all rolled into one.

Regular Salles collaborator Jose Rivera wrote the script, and the film is headed for this year’s Cannes Festival before a planned UK release on September 21.

Viggo looks excellent as Old Bull Lee. After trying to watch the Rum Diary though I don't trust anyone with my favourite books any more. More

Viggo looks excellent as Old Bull Lee. I don't think I would trust anyone with my favourtie books after the Rum Diary though. My expectations are probably too high though. More

The road less travelled
I love popcorn movies. I love stupid, loud car chases and gunfire. I love big bangs and lots of language that'd make a biker blush. BUT... I love the fact that people like Coppola shunned the mainstream and gets movies like this to the screen. Of course it might be total crap but I doubt it. At any rate it's not a movie about some bloke in a rubber suit who fights crime More
