I’ve been eagerly awaiting/Dreading news about this movie. When it was originally announced that Kirsten Stewart & Kirsten Dunst were cast as the two main female leads i braced myself to absolutely hate this movie. The addition of Viggo Mortenson and Amy Adams helped a little, but to say i had DEEP reservations was an understatement. See, i’ve read all of Kerouacs books, along with most of the Beat generation writers, and since On The Road was what i popped my cherry on, it’s always been a little sacred for me. Well, today the first pics from the set were released (check them all HERE ) and i have to say i’m a little intrigued. I think that the casting of Garrett Hedlund (bio HERE ) has helped somewhat, he’s still mostly unknown and has a youthful without being a teenager appearance.In addition, the other main actor, Sam Riley (Bio HERE ) is as unknown as it gets. I’m just hoping the man responsible for The Motorcycle Diaries, Walter Salles ( Bio HERE ) wouldn’t trash a piece of classic literature. I guess we’ll see. Also, HERE’s a quick interview with Garrett about the movie.
