On the Road movie?
The long-rumored film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic ON THE ROAD, may finally get off the ground with Joel Schumacher behind the camera and Colin Farrell in front. At a press conference held by Francis Ford Coppola touting his American Zoetrope production company and their upcoming releases, it was revealed a script was written by Russell Banks (AFFLICTION) with Schumacher on board to direct. While no cast has officially been signed, Coppola said he has spoken with Schumacher and they hope to convince Farrell to star as protagonist Neal Cassidy. Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Billy Crudup have all been attached to star at one point or another and for some time Coppola himself wanted to direct.
