'On The Road' Becomes a Movie at Last

Many consider Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” sacred text. The novel was, after all, originally typed on a scroll.
Translated into 40 languages, millions of copies of the Beat generation classic have sold worldwide since the novel was published in 1957, placing it among the 20th century’s most influential books. 

When it comes to the big screen, however, “On the Road” has faced a Kerouac curse. Past efforts by Hollywood to adapt the author’s work have been failures.Now, somewhat quietly, “On the Road” has finally been made into a movie. The $25 million production, shot in San Francisco, Montreal and other locales, is scheduled for release this fall.

The movie is expected to be of keen interest in San Francisco where the Beats and their old hangouts are a cottage industry. Each year, thousands of people flock to North Beach to visit the City Lights bookstore and the bar Vesuvio or to gawk at Kerouac artifacts in The Beat Museum.

The creative team from another counterculture road movie is leading the project: the director Walter Salles and the screenwriter Jose Rivera from the award-winning Che Guevara biopic “The Motorcycle Diaries.”
 
The cast is peppered with actors with box-office appeal, including Kristen Stewart of “Twilight” fame, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen. The two male leads, characters based on Kerouac and his fellow flâneur Neal Cassady, are played by lesser-known actors, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund.
 
In July, before filming began near the primary sets in Montreal, the cast and crew went through Beat boot camp — three weeks of immersion with Kerouac experts.

Back to her north of the border filming locale, Kristen Stewart was hard at work on the set of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" in Vancouver on Monday (April 18). The Bella Swan babe was dressed in blue as she also happened to be sporting a ring in which her character received from Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen in the movie. Also on location for the week-beginning shoot were Guri Weinberg and Noel Fisher - with the stars all rigged up in a device to replicate "vampire running."

Security on the production was very tight with crew members holding up umbrellas to block the shots.

InStyle | Rob & Reese's On Set Style

 
 

To play a circus performer in the big-screen adaptation of Water for Elephants, Reese Witherspoon had to transform her chic modern style into a believable retro look, something she couldn’t have done without the expertise of wardrobe designer Jacqueline West.”In the 1930s, gowns were very revealing, ” says West. “The women of that era wore them without any underwear, so that’s what Reese did. She was very brave.”

 

"The script followed the novel so closely that it was easy to picture what the characters looked like. They practically dressed themselves," says West, who created both dapper evening ensembles and well-worn work looks for Robert Pattinson's character Jacob.
"Rob cleans up well... and he dirties up well too!"
