Viggo Mortensen goes back On The Road with Amy Adams
No, Viggo Mortensen isn't returning to Cormac McCarthy's bleak post-apocalypse, but he is planning to beat his feet on another cross-country trip.
Mortensen will appear in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's influential semi-autobiography ON THE ROAD, playing Old Bull Lee. Amy Adams will portray his junkie wife Jane.
The movie, directed by Walter Salles (THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, DARK WATER) and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, also features Kirsten Dunst, TRON: LEGACY's Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart and Sam Riley (CONTROL) as Kerouac's alter-ego Sal Paradise.
While you should probably already be familiar with the material, Kerouac's famous Beat Generation book chronicles the epic excess-and-music-fueled journey of a young man crisscrossing America in 1947.
|Extra Tidbit:||Coppola has held the film rights for the book since 1980.|
