The Long Gestation of Cannes-Bound 'On the Road'

Interesting article about the history of On The Road's production, the announced release dates and some speculation about Cannes :)

After 44 years, possibly the longest gestation period in cinema history, the film version of Jack Kerouac’s classic Beat novel
"On the Road" is finally hitting the big screen. Francis Ford Coppola, then a rising director-screenwriter still in his 20s, bought the film rights to it back in 1968.

The film, directed by Brazilian Walter Salles, was shot in autumn 2010. But it has now been announced that "On the Road" will open in the UK on September 21. A number of other European territories have been confirmed, the first of them being Belgium on May 23.

Intriguingly, given that the film was partly financed by France’s MK2 productions, the French release date has still to be announced. But France and Belgium often go simultaneously with for movie openings – and May 23 is in the second week of the Cannes Film Festival.

This suggests that "On the Road" may have its world premiere in Cannes. Director Salles is a firm favorite on the Croisette; his films "The Motorcycle Diaries" (2004) and "Linha de Passe" (2008) were screened there.

No US distributor has yet been announced for "On the Road."

'On The Road' to premiere at Cannes Film Festival on May 23, 2012??

According to LiterrayKicks ~OTR will be premiering at this years' Cannes film festival- Still, no official confirmation, but grain of salt on this one.
1. After (seriously) 17 years of development, the major new Hollywood Walter Salles/Francis Ford Coppola film of On The Road is going to premiere on May 23, four months and twelve days from now, at the Cannes Film Festival in the French Riviera. I can't believe the day is actually going to come.
(For the record, the news is still unconfirmed, but it's true.)

Update on OTR Being Picked up in Cannes

 Yesterday, the On the Road poster was released. I am not sure this is the official poster but might just be something for Cannes. I am so super excited about this project!! The poster is perfect for the movie. The book is amazing and I highly suggest reading it. Anyways, it seems that 'On the Road' has been picked up Internationally but still looking for a home here in the US. I am not worried about it, as there could definitely be some politics there. Anyways read more below!! Ruby

Here’s the first glimpse at a teaser poster from Cannes for Walter Salles’ upcoming adaptation of the iconic Beat Generation novel “On The Road” by Jack Kerouac.
The film was rumored to have footage screening on the Croisette and is currently selling like wildfire with distribution deals sealed for many territories including Australia and the U.K. but—somewhat, shockingly—it has still yet to find a home stateside. That may very well change by the end of Cannes but with Francis Ford Coppola‘s American Zoetrope, Salles’ Rio de Janeiro-based Videofilmes and the U.K.‘s Film4 on board, it’s in pretty capable hands.
Starring Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley as protagonists Dean Moriarty and Sal Paradise (surrogates of Kerouac and Neal Cassady), the novel follows the two on a journey across the North American landscape in pursuit of self-knowledge and experience, with a stellar supporting cast put together, including Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Sturridge, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard, Alice Braga and Elisabeth Moss.
The pic will also mark a reunion for Salles with the majority of his behind the camera team from “The Motorcycle Diaries” including writer Jose Rivera, DP. Eric Gautier, production designer Carlos Conti and composer Gustavo Santaolalla. Interestingly, there’s also been news of a second photography stint by Salles and Hedlund as they traveled through the back roads of the U.S. in a ‘49 Hudson in an attempt to recreate the trip taken by the duo for additional second unit lensing.
We can’t wait to see what they’ve created for us here. A fall festival premiere is very likely with Venice a possible suspect. [Twitpic viaOnTheRoadFilm]
