Kristen Stewart’s “On the Road” Gets More International Distribution

Given limited distribution for some of Kstew’s other recent indie flicks (e.g., “The Runaways”, “Welcome to the Rileys”) it is encouraging news that makers of the upcoming film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” have already announced far-reaching distribution plans.

Heard recently at Cannes and confirmed via IMDB Pro, Icon Film Distribution of Great Britain and Icon Film Distribution of Australia were announced as regional distributors of the film. For the Great Britain branch, this translates to theatrical distribution in Ireland and all media distribution in the UK. For the Australian arm, this means theatrical distribution in New Zealand and all media distribution in Australia.

Other distribution rights for the film had already been sold to other regions—Cinearts holds rights for Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg (Benelux), and Concorde Filmverleih for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.

In addition to Kristen, who has been confirmed for the role of Marylou (widely known to be parallel real-life associate of Kerouac, Luanne Henderson), other confirmed cast members for “On the Road” include Kirsten Dunst (as Camille), Sam Riley (as Sal Paradise), and Garrret Hedlund (as protagonist Dean Moriarty).

The film is a portrayal of Kerouac’s own Beatnik experience, which rejected social norms of materialism while embracing taboos around sexuality and drugs. TIME Magazine critics Lev Grossman and Richard Lacayo named “On the Road” among the 100 Best American Novels written since 1923, calling it “the book that launched a thousand trips”.
