On The Road...

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Walter Salles will direct the feature adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. Francis Ford Coppolla's production company, Zoetrope Productions, has had the rights to the beat generation novel since 1979, so I'd say it's about time they finally got moving on it! Salles will collaborate with screenwriter Jose Rivera (the two also teamed together on The Motorcycle Diaries).

Let us know who you think should play Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty... -- Amy

  1. Well, here are two real patrons from La Cucaracha, the bar in On the Road. Perhaps they're up to auditioning? The photo is from my trip to San Miguel earlier this year.
