ON THE ROAD

**UK RELEASE DATE CHANGE - TO 12 OCTOBER 2012**



Starring:
SAM RILEY, GARRETT HEDLUND, KRISTEN STEWART

Directed by:
WALTER SALLES

Icon Film Distribution and Lionsgate announce that ON THE ROAD, Walter Salles’ long-awaited adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s great American novel that defined a generation, will open in cinemas across the UK on 12 October 2012.

After the death of his father, Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a young and dangerously seductive ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined not to get trapped in a narrow life, the two friends burn their bridges and hit the road: thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, others and themselves.

Alongside Sam Riley (Brighton Rock, Control), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) and Kristen Stewart (The Twilight Saga films), the cast also includes Amy Adams (Oscar-nominated for The Fighter), Tom Sturridge (The Boat That Rocked), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Alice Braga (Blindness), Terrence Howard (Iron Man, Hustle and Flow), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia, Spider-Man), Viggo Mortensen (A Dangerous Method, The Road), and Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire, Fargo).

Walter Salles is reunited with co-writer José Rivera, following their collaboration on The Motorcycle Diaries. The film is produced by Marin Karmitz, Nathanaël Karmitz, Charles Gillibert and Rebecca Yeldham and co-financed by Film4 with Tessa Ross as one of the executive producers on the film.

Since it was first published in 1957, Kerouac’s cult novel has sold over 10 million copies, but has never previously been filmed. 

ON THE ROAD WILL BE RELEASED IN CINEMAS ACROSS THE UK ON 12 OCTOBER 2012
