Twilight Saga fans use to seeing Kristen Stewart as indifferent but lovely Bella will be shocked to see her in her new movie, On the Road. In the new movie, Kristen Stewart plays the anti-Bella, a 16-year old girl named Marylou, who is wild in ways Bella would never imagine.
On the Road is based on a book written by Jack Kerouac. It was written in 1951 and is based on road trips Kerouac took across America when he was younger. On the Road chronicles the experiences he had during those trips. It details the drugs, sex and was among the 100 best English novels picked by Time magazine between 1923 and 2005. Filming for On the Road is currently taking place in Montreal. A specific date for release has not been set for the movie but it will be released in 2011.
The Hollywood Gossip states that Kristen Stewart is set to act in some extremely adult scenes which have Stewart engaging in sexual activities some adults would pass on. Kristenâ€™s character for her new movie, Marylou, brags about her sexual encounters and about her wild ways.
According to Life and Style, Kristen Stewart most likely took on the role of Marylou because she doesnâ€™t want to be type cast as sweet and innocent. Platinum Rye Entertainmentâ€™s CEO, Ryan Schinman, said, â€œMany actors who are entering adulthood want to make their own mark and stop being seen as bubblegum, cookiecutter teen stars.â€
Thereâ€™s no doubt that Kristen Stewart will definitely accomplish that goal. On the Road will have many viewers dropping their jaws. The Beat Museum reports that the other actors on the cast of On the Road are Garret Hedlund as Dean Moriarty, Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, Kristen Dunst as Carolyn Cassady, Tom Sturridge as Carlo Marx, Viggo Mortensen as Old Bull Lee and Amy Adams and Joan Vollmer.
On the Road may not draw in the same audience as the Twilight Saga movies but it will none-the-less be a popular movie; one much more adult themed than forbidden Vampire love. The target audience for On the Road is most likely older, more refined, and have probably read the book before or at least have heard of it.
Are you excited that On the Road is finally being turned into a movie? Are you curious to see whether or not Kristen Stewart will be able to play such an adult role?
