The trailer is out for On the Road, the much-anticipated film of Jack Kerouac’s iconic and homoerotic Beat Generation novel.
It stars as San Riley Sal Paradise (based on Kerouac) and Garrett Hedlund as pal Dean Moriarty (based on Kerouac friend Neal Cassady). Tom Sturridge plays Carlo Marx, a fictional version of gay poet Allen Ginsberg, and Viggo Mortensen is Old Man Bull, a stand-in for William S. Burroughs. For the ladies, there’s Kristen Stewart as Dean’s young wife, Marylou — and she appears seminude.
Others in the starry cast include Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Alice Braga, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard, and Elisabeth Moss. Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) directs from a script by Jose Rivera. No definite release date is set, but the film is expected to be out later this year.
