Jesus christ I love Kerouac's On the Road, which either makes me exactly the right audience or exactly the wrong audience for this thing. The good news is Walter Salles—The Motorcycle Diaries—is directing, the somewhat-less-than-great news is that the kid from Tron 2 is Dean and Kristen Stewart will be doing her half-lidded, slack-jawed thing too. It's got a pretty impressive supporting cast, though, and hey, it looks pretty! I will probably see this. I am slightly nervous about it.
