On The Road – 12 Oct 2012
A film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s cult classic novel has been a long time coming. The author apparently contacted Marlon Brando directly in 1957 about a starring role, and since buying the rights in 1979 exec producer Francis Ford Coppla has had many names attached to the project. It is Brazilian director Walter Salles, who impressed with his adaptation of The Motorcycle Diaries, who finally brings us this big screen portrait of the Beat Generation, with a fantastic cast including Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst.
Dir: Walter Salles
Cast: Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst
Released: 12 October 2012
