First Poster & More Photos from Walter Salles' 'On the Road' Movie
Time to take a look at some impressive shots from the upcoming Jack Kerouac adaptation of On the Road, directed by Walter Salles, starring Sam Riley as Sal Paradise and Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty. We've seen one good first look at this indie adaptation before, but now the film's official Facebook page (via Collider) has uploaded a new poster and a batch of photos. There's some stunning natural backgrounds in a few of these shots. I'm interested to see this, it looks like it has a very raw, rough style to it. While the cast has plenty other great names in it, these new shots only have Ridley and Hedlund, but are still worth seeing.
On the Road also stars Kristen Stewart, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan and Elisabeth Moss. From Facebook:
On the Road, directed by Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries, Dark Water), based on Jack Kerouac's book, tells the story of Sal Paradise (Riley), 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. This was filmed last year and is looking for a US distributor. We expect this to premiere in Cannes, but no release info is available yet.
Looks great. For some strange reason this reminds me of Y tu mama tambien, although I'm far from the truth.
