See Kristen Stewart Do Kerouac In The Trailer for 'On the Road'Chase Whale |
The first trailer for 'On the Road', Walter Salles' feature adaption of Jack Kerouac's famous autobiographical novel of the same name, has just been released. Starring Sam Riley ('Control') as Kerouac's alter ego, Sal Paradise, Garrett Hedlund ('Tron: Legacy') as his new pal Dean Moriarty (the fictionalized version of Neal Cassady), and Kristen Stewart as Moriarty's 16-year-old wife, the story follows them on their impromptu road trips throughout America from 1947 to 1950. During their journey, they start to change and understand who they are - self discovery if you will. Also starring in the film is Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen and a Saxophone-playing Terrence Howard ('Iron Man').
We haven't read the book but we'll watch anything Sam Riley stars in after seeing his portrayal of one of music's most influential artists, the late Ian Curtis, in Anton Corbin's 'Control'. Plus, Salles is directing and he made the incredible Academy Awarding winning movie 'The Motorcycle Diaries' about Che Guevara's road trip adventure that led him to figure out his life's calling.
'On the Road' hasn't been in production hell, but we have been waiting a long time to see this film. And now we have the official trailer for your viewing pleasure. To watch it, you have to "Like" the film on Facebook, but the effort is worth your time.
There's still no release date for 'On the Road', but it is slated to open sometime this year.
