ON THE ROAD trailer

Finally appearing from the development limbo it's been in for the last 50 years, we now have our first look at the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic Beat Generation novel, On The Road. Based on Kerouac's more-than-semi-autobiographical account of a jazz infused trip across America, this long gestating project has finally come to fruition under the direction of Motorcycle Diaries' Walter Salles.

For a film that stars the unlikely combination of the cinematic Ian Curtis, the girl from Twilight and the guy from Tron Legacy, I'd have to say that the casting looks perfect. Suitably sweaty and sexy in equal measures, for god's sake I hope they get this right. From what we've seen in the trailer it looks promising to say the least.

Will it be the ultimate road movie? No, that's Planes, Trains and Automobiles... but this still looks pretty good.
