First Look: ON THE ROAD
Since starting production in August, news surrounding the upcoming adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s legendary novel, On The Road, has been rather silent.
Starring the likes of Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart, and Steve Buscemi, the film is directed by Walter Salles, and now, thanks to On The Road Film (via The Playlist), we have a new look at the film. And I must say, it looks fantastic. Check out another picture after the break.
The film sees Salles reteaming with the likes of writer Jose River and cinematographer Eric Gautier, who he had previously worked with on his absolutely fantastic drama, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES, along with brilliant composer Gustavo Santaolalla (whose DIARIES score is still one of the best put to film, in the eyes and ears of this writer).
These photos look great, particularly the black and white snapshots, which hint back to previous statements by the director saying that an adaptation of On The Road could only work in black and white. Sure, there are some color photos here, but it is these black and white photos that truly have me excited to see what Salles can do here. He’s one of the best filmmakers that we have working today, and I would love to see what he can do in this black and white format.
Head here for more photos. What do you think?
