The long-rumored film version of Jack Kerouac’s classic On the Road must be getting closer to release. The film’s first trailer has arrived! The Motorcycle Diaries director Walter Salles is charged with bringing an iconic book from the pages to the screen. He has a great cast in that effort with Sam Riley portraying Kerouac’s alter-ego Sal Paradise and Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty (the fictionalized Neal Cassady). Let’s not forget the supporting cast that includes Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Elisabeth Moss and Alice Braga.
The movie still does not have a release date, but the fact that the long-delayed project has given us a trailer is good enough for now for this Kerouac fan.
