WALTER SALLES’ ON THE ROAD STARTS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY
MK2 presents ON THE ROAD, a film by Walter Salles, adapted from Jack Kerouac’s legendary novel by José Rivera.
The shooting started on Wednesday, August 4 and will continue until the end of the year in New Orleans, Mexico, Canada and San Francisco.
After the death of his father, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, 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.
ON THE ROAD is an MK2 production, produced by Rebecca Yeldham.
Executive producers are Nathanael Karmitz and Charles Gillibert.
The film is co-produced by American Zoetrope, VideoFilmes, Film4 and France 2.
MK2 is in charge of international sales.
