On the Road – Kristen Stewart joins the adaption of Jack Kerouac’s classis

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

Back in April news came out that Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) was going the direct On the Road. This adaption has been in development hell for years, but things are moving forward. We knew Garrett Hedland (Tron Legacy) is going to play drifter Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley (Control) is down to play, Sal.

Now it looks as if Moriarty’s wife has been cast in the shape of Twilight’s Kristen Stewart.

She had this to say while talking to USA Today. “I am very much attached to a movie that has been trying to get made forever. Not that this is going to help it, but maybe I can just brag a little bit. I am super excited about it, too. I am about to play Marylou in On the Road. So that’s a big deal.”

Not sure if these are the right choices for the film, but that could just be because they don’t fit with the look of how I always imagined the character.

Still there is one good thing about the casting. It should make a whole new generation look into the works of Jack Kerouac and anything that gets people reading new things is cool in my book.

How do you feel about the casting news?

Franklyn – New photos from Meanwhile City

Posted by LiveFor on February 19, 2009

I’ve posted some posters and the trailer for the Gerald McMorrow directed film starring Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley and Bernard Hill. Now we have lots of new photos to look at thanks to io9.

Franklyn
is set between the parallel worlds of contemporary London and the futuristic metropolis of Meanwhile City, and weaves a tale of four souls, whose lives are intertwined by fate, romance and tragedy. As these worlds collide, a single bullet determines the destiny of these four characters.

Preest, a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City, a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervor. Esser (Bernard Hill) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London’s homeless. Milo (Sam Riley) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Green) is a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.

Posted by LiveFor on October 15, 2008

I mentioned this back on the 5th September and today a trailer has finally appeared.

Ryan Phillippe plays a masked vigilante detective named Preest, who is searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City, a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervor. Bernhard Hill plays Esser, a broken man who is searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London’s homeless. Sam Riley plays a heartbroken guy named Milo, who is desperately trying to find a way back to “the purity of first love.” And Eva Green plays an art student named Emilia whose suicidal artwork is “becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.”

What do you think of the trailer? Are you intrigued by the movie? The film is released in the UK in January next year.

Franklyn – Neo-noir set in Meanwhile City

Posted by LiveFor on September 5, 2008

Interesting sounding film. Franklyn, starring Ryan Phillippe, Eva Green, Sam Riley and Bernard Hill among others. Written and directed by Gerald McMorrow. The story of four lost souls in a futuristic London society where there is no separation between Church and State.

Quiet Earth have this description of it: Preest, a masked vigilante detective, searching for his nemesis on the streets of Meanwhile City, a monolithic fantasy metropolis ruthlessly governed by faith and religious fervor. Esser (Bernard Hill) is a broken man, searching for his wayward son amongst the rough streets of London’s homeless. Milo (Sam Riley) is a heartbroken thirty-something desperately trying to find a way back to the purity of first love. Emilia (Green) is a beautiful art student; her suicidal art projects are becoming increasingly more complex and deadly.

Looks like four intertwined stories and is probably not going to be a bundle of laughs, but does sound intriguing and the imagery seems rather Sandman and DC Vertigo in general. Suicidal art projects does sound a bit silly though. Surely you can only ever do the one?
