It has taken decades to get Jack Kerouac’s On the Road on the big screens, but producer Francis Ford Coppola and director Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) have finally done it. Filming took place last year and the movie will likely make the festival rounds this fall. However, you need to get past a cast that’s a mixture of “great” and “sometimes good”. In the “great” category, you have Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard, and Sam Riley. And then as lead characters Dean Moriarty, Marylou, and Camille, you have Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, and Kirsten Dunst, respectively. It’s a diverse cast and I’m hoping that they all deliver, but expectations tend to build when you’re adapting a modern literary classic.

Hit the jump to check out the promo poster (which features none of the cast or even drops their names) for On the Road.

Here’s the official synopsis On the Road:

After the death of his father, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a young and dangerously seductive ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined not to get trapped in a narrow life, the two friends burn their bridges and hit the road : thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, others and themselves.
