We was waiting this to be released this year, but according to an interview director Walter Salles did to Brazilian “Glamourama”, will be ready in 2012 only.
There were six years of preparation”, Waltinho (his Brazilian nickname) said, and he could close deals with nothing less than Francis Ford Coppola and the French production company MK2. “We crossed the US from coast to coast, with a crew of 5 people. We also went to Canada and Mexico.” All of this to create in the spectator what he calls a “dislocation feeling and desire for discovery”, that are also present in Kerouac’s book.
Waltinho, by the way, isn’t the only star of the production. In the cast there’s also Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Alice Braga, among others. Editing should be done by the end of September, and the movie hits the screens in 2012.”
