Though it’s certainly one of the more high profile indie projects to come along in quite some time, the first feature film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal tome On the Road has only now secured domestic distribution. IFC Films and Sundance Selects have acquired the distribution rights to director Walter Salles’ adaptation, with a theatrical release planned for sometime this fall. Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, and Sam Riley front the all-star cast that also includes Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, and Elizabeth Moss.
I was a big fan of the first trailer, so I’m eager to check the full film out later this year. On the Road will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next week, so we’ll have the first reactions/reviews soon. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the film.
