Preview: On the Road

For Jack Kerouac fans: On the RoadBased on his novel and directed by Walter Salles due out this year.
The film stars Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart as the lead characters. Francis Ford Coppola is the executive producer. Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi and Terrance Howard help round out a star-studded cast.

Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights to this book back in the late 70's and tried several times to have a script written and find the right actors and directors only to have it fall through. But after Coppola saw Walter Salles' The Motorcycle Diaries, he hired the director for the final attempt. Here is the trailer.

The movie will be released in parts of Europe this spring through fall but there is no set date for the US release.
