Kristen Stewart is On the Road for Jack Kerouac adaptation

05.06.2010

Kristen Stewart just nabbed the lead in a new film that doesn't involve vampires or guys that turn into werewolves that never wear shirts.

Stewart is starring in the big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. Walter Salles will helm the film with Oscar nominated screenwriter Jose Rivera whom the director worked with on THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES. Francis Ford Coppola will produce via his San Francisco-based outfit American Zoetrop.

Director Salles traveled across the United States following Kerouac's footsteps for the adaptation. He filmed a documentary on his journey as part of his preparation.

The role Stewart will play is the adventurous on and off wife of Dean Moriarity, Marylou. Sam Riley (CONTROL) is starring as Kerouac's alter-ego Sal Paradise. Garrett Hedlund (TRON: LEGACY) has been cast as Moriarity.

On the Road was typed on a 120 ft. scroll then adapted into a book published in 1957. The famous novel, "chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, "a sideburned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty," the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience."

Extra Tidbit: How many people here actually don't mind Stewart?

Like Robert Pattinson(whatever the hell ya spell it), I lose interest in anything she is in, maybe by a miracle you have the most best talents behind/in front of the screen for a movie and she is also in it, I might rent the dvd. lol.

I don't mind Stewart. I would mind people who do if there weren't so many of them.

Don't mind her--haven't seen her in much, don't know what her acting chops are.

Glad Coppola's American Zoetrope are finally getting this movie off the ground--they've been trying to adapt this for what seems like forever.

OUTSIDE of the shitty Twilight movies, i think she has the capability to be quite a fine actress. I dig her.

I not only don't mind her, but I actually quite like her. Especially in Into the Wild.

I don't mind her at all...

Have no desire to see any Twilight flick...ever. But I, too, liked her in Adventureland and even her small role in 'Into the Wild' (She had no pants on, so I'm on board).

Don't know how good this movie is gonna be. Even as a book, its better as an idea/spirit than it is a narrative. Its, by design, meandering (literally), and goes into extensive detail of a long-lost subculture that is borderline archaic to new generations. Probably would've made a better movie in the 70s along with

Probably would've made a better movie in the 70s along with the other great road movies of that era. But I just can't imagine the recreational hard drug use and a severe love of jazz transitioning to the screen... Well, the drug use I get, but not the jazz.

To quote Shawn Mullins...

wouldn't kick her out of bed...

but seriously i think she was alright in Adventureland.
Never seen the twilight films. but even so i hear the writing is one of the biggest faults in that series so can we really blame her??
I dunno.

I'm ok with her at the moment.
