when I googled it... it appears that perhaps Sam Riley, who was in a movie called Control that I have never seen may be Keruoac's Sal Paradise.I am not sure how I feel about Kristen Stewart being in the movie at all. In general, I dislike her performances. But fingers crossed that movie is made and made well, because it's one of my all-time favorite books! =)
sam riley played doomed joy division singer ian curtis in the aforementioned movie, control. i can get behind him as sal/jack. he also has that dark brooding thing or whatever going on. having not seen either twilight or the new runaways movie, i am unfamilar with ms. stewart's work. at least we're getting a cast together! how about james franco reprising his role as dear carlo marx?
I can live with James Franco as Carlo, and, while I didn't see control, Riley looks the part from what I can see. I can see Kristen Stewart as Marylou, too. The big thing is going to be converting the novel to film. What a challenge. But there are enough scenes, for sure, and there's enough narrative. I think it's possible to create a pretty damn good movie!
