First Look: Garrett Hedlund & Kristen Stewart in 'On the Road' Movie
Stepping away from the worlds of Tron and Twilight, actors Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart are hoping on the Jack Kerouac caravan next for On the Road, the Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) directed adaptation of Kerouac's 1957 book. While filming is now complete, we haven't seen much from the adaptation yet, but Comme Au Cinema (via ComingSoon) has finally posted some photos, and they're quite intriguing to see. Hedlund plays Dean Moriarty, a fictionalized version of Neal Cassady, and Stewart plays his sweetheart Marylou. Above is also Sam Riley (Franklyn) as Sal Paradise, Kerouac's fictional alter-ego.
On the Road tells the story of Sal Paradise, who sets off on a cross country journey expressing the restless energy and desire for freedom that makes people rush out to see the world. Hedlund plays Sal's friend Dean, who inspires him to see America, while Stewart plays his on-again-off-again wife Marylou. Viggo Mortensen also plays Old Bull Lee, a character loosely based on novelist William S. Burroughs, while Amy Adams plays Jane (an incarnation Joan Vollmer), the junkie mother of two kids, and Lee's wife. Sounds like its got a great cast and these photos look quite good, so let's hope this adaptation turned out as great as we are all hoping.
