“On the Road” updates

French mini-major MK2 has inked a slew of sales on Walter Salles’ “On The Road”. MK2 exec produces and handles international sales on the $25 million pic.

Pic was nabbed by Alliance Films for Canada, Noble Entertainment, Future Film and Star Media Entertainment for Scandinavia and Rosebud for Greece. “On the Road” has already been picked up by Icon (U.K., Australia), Cineart (Benelux), Telemuenchen (Germany, Austria), Medusa (Italy), Filmcoopi (Switzerland), and Falcon (Middle East).

This because the movie had a footage showed this past Sunday on Cannes, to domestic buyers. They’re still waiting for U.S. deal.

Also, the teaser poster has surfaced. We hope pictures of Amy can be seen soon.

‘On the Road’ to be released in 2012

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.”


Walter Salles’ ‘On The Road’ Unlikely To Debut At Cannes;

Put simply, Waltes Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s “On The Road” is a film we’re anticipating this year with as much excitement as any other. Unfortunately it looks like that wait will have to be a tad longer as any surprise appearance at the Croisette this May is unlikely, with one of the film’s supporting cast members, Alice Braga, telling Pilula Pop the production is working towards a 2012 release after recently wrapping principal photography.

That schedule would put the film in line for a fall festival unveiling rather than Cannes this May—a sentiment reportedly backed by the pic’s French distributor’s MK2 —making for another major Croisette “dropout” alongside Wong Kar-wai‘s “The Grand Masters” and Pedro Almodóvar‘s “The Skin I Live In.” Braga, when asked about whether or not the film would be in black and white as Salles had valiantly campaigned for (and despite early photos hinting at such), said “No! It’s colorful!” [Source]

“On the Road” rumored to be presented at Cannes Festival

Cannes Festival line-up hasn’t been announced yet, but we can find here and there some articles rumoring the films that may can be seen. Walter Salles (and his On The Road) is one of the mentioned.

While we’ll have to wait to hear about the lineup for this year’s fest the potential lineup could be amazing with Terrence Malick, Lars Von Trier, Pedro Almodovar, David Cronenberg, Woody Allen, Walter Salles, Richard Linklater and Gus Van Sant with films in various states that could be ready Cannes.

The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 11-22, 2011.

“On the Road” script review


”In 1951, after three cross-country road trips, Jack Kerouac wrote his defining novel: On the Road.  The book, published from a continuous 120-foot scroll, chronicles his adventures (as Sal Paradise) with Neal Cassady (renamed Dean) through life-changing experiences of drugs, sex, jazz and poetry.  Now the novel is becoming a movie, 31 years after Francis Ford Coppola obtained the rights.

Filming on the long-delayed adaptation is finally underway.  Walter Salles, whose The Motorcycle Diaries carries similar themes of finding one’s self on the open road, is directing a stellar cast and the inimitable Coppola is executive producing.  To celebrate, I read both the June 2005 and May 2010 (production white) drafts of the screenplay by Jose Rivera, who collaborated with Salles on Diaries for a well-deserved Oscar nomination.  Of course, this is only an evaluation of those drafts and not of the unfinished film:

Amy talks about her “On The Road” co-star Stewart

Amy reveled in the highly creative experience that director Walter Salles (“The Motorcycle Diaries”) created on set. “We had a lot of time with each other and a lot of play, a lot of freedom,” she explained.

Adams plays Jane, the drug-addicted wife of Old Bull Lee (Viggo Mortensen), a character said to be based on author William S. Burroughs. “On the Road” was her first project after giving birth to her daughter in May, and she thrust herself into the role.

“The character I played required me to be in such a haze,” she explained. “My experience is very tactile — very damp and very hot. I was so in that character.”

Adams credits Salles with allowing her to dive so deeply into the character and for letting the cast “play” so openly both in front of the camera and when shooting would wrap each day. Since most of her scenes are with Mortensen, it was during production downtime that she got to know Stewart.

“She’s just really sweet,” Adams said.

On The Road: “I Was Very Intimidated”.

Amy talked with E!’s Mark Malkin last night, and some of subjects was her most recent project, On The Road, and her impressions about working with Kristen Stewart.

Amy spent four days in New Orleans shooting “On the Road” with Twilight star Kristen Stewart. “I got requests for autographs, and I didn’t ask for a single one,” Why? “I guess I’m getting to the point in my life where I’m suspicious of teenagers and I’m intimidated a little bit.

Kristen is 20 years old. She’s not a teenager but she’s close enough and I was very intimidated,” Adams said.

Adams is a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s vampire book series. “I told [Stewart] I read the books and she was like, ‘You’ve read the books?,’ ” Adams recalled. “She couldn’t compute it, but you have to imagine I was playing this sort of bedraggled drug addict so I’m she was like, ‘That doesn’t seem like the audience.’ But she was incredibly gracious and lovely.

This was the Amy’s first red carpet appearance since giving birth to her first child Aviana, on May 15. “I don’t think she recognized me when I was leaving the house, I’m so done up and she’s used to seeing me in sweats.


Amy joins ‘On The Road’

Francis Ford Coppola has been working for 30 years to turn Jack Kerouac’s seminal Beat Generation novel On the Road into a movie. It is starting to look like it was worth the wait. Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen are joining the Walter Salles-directed adaptation that will begin this month, I’m told. She will play Jane, the emotionally damaged junkie mother of two children and the wife of Old Bull Lee. Mortensen is going to play Lee. Kirsten Dunst, Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley and Tron: Legacy’s Garrett Hedlund are also set for the pic. Script’s by Jose Rivera, who teamed with Salles on The Motorcycle Diaries. Coppola and Rebecca Yeldham are producing. The film began production today.
