The first trailer for Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road finally came out and wasn’t a total nightmare. Strangely, a British actor stars as Sal Paradise (Sam Riley ) alongside Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund as his pleasure-seeking muse Dean Moriarty. Twilight’s Kristen Stewart also appears as Dean’s hot mess of a wife who throws him out, inadvertently kicking off Sal and Dean’s bennie-fueled trips back and forth across the country. The trailer makes use of one of the more famous quotes from the novel:

“...and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles...”
