Producer Charle Gillibert has announced the following, via Twitter: "Am happy to share with you : OTR french release the 23rd of may, more to come."

OTR? That's On the Road, directed by Walter Salles, and starring Kristen Stewart, Sam Riley, and Garrett Hedlund. As for the May 23 released date in France, does that mean On the Road will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival? Possibly. Cannes 2012 runs from May 16-27.

Based on Jack Kerouac's classic novel, On the Road follows New York-based writer Sal Paradise (Riley); rebel Dean Moriarty (Hedlund); and Dean's girl, Marylou (Stewart), as they go on a road trip following the death of Sal's father. Sal is based on Kerouac himself; Dean, on Kerouac's friend Neal Cassady; and Marylou on Cassady's first wife, LuAnne Henderson.

Walter Salles directed the Brazilian drama Central Station (1998), which earned two Academy Award nominations: Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress for Fernanda Montenegro (who wuz robbed). José Rivera, Salles screenwriter on another road movie, The Motorcycle Diaries (2004), wrote the On the Road adaptation. Rivera was nominated for an Oscar for his Motorcycle Diaries effort.

In addition to Stewart, Hedlund, and Riley, the On the Road cast includes Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, Tom Sturridge, Alice Braga, Steve Buscemi, Danny Morgan, Elisabeth Moss, and Terrence Howard. Francis Ford Coppola is listed as one of the executive producers, while Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain) is the film's composer.

    Jacob Ortiz is my Neices son and we are so proud of him and I just want to say " Thank You " for the chance you gave Jacob. Sincerely, Eva Callicutt, Nampa , Idaho

    Working opposite. Alice Braga has been a highlight of my career. Jacob Ortiz as my grandson was fun. I'll use him in my movie, the Deadliest Gun.

  3. I'm so excited to see this! Do we have US dates yet?
