We finally saw a feature film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “unfilmable” novel On the Road hit theaters last year, and in 2013 another of Kerouac’s novels is coming to the big screen.  The first trailer for writer-director Michael Polish’s adaptation of Big Sur has been released online.  The film tells the story of Kerouac’s move from New York City to Northern California, and stars Jean-Marc Barr as Kerouac, Josh Lucas as Neal Cassidy, and Kate Bosworth as Billie, the love interest of both men.  Polish shows a strong eye for visuals in this trailer, and Barr looks to give an impassioned performance as Kerouac spirals into depression.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Radha Mitchell, Anthony Edwards, and Henry Thomas.  The pic will premiere at the upcoming 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which runs from January 17 – 27th.

Here’s the synopsis for Big Sur:

Unable to cope with a suddenly demanding public and battling advanced alcoholism, Jack Kerouac seeks respite in three brief sojourns to a cabin in Big Sur, which reveal his mental and physical deterioration.
