Kristen Stewart continues to use her Twilight momentum to make indie projects happen. Stewart, who starred in two of the higher profile films at Sundance– The Runaways and Welcome to the Rileys–just said yes to the Walter Salles-directed adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. Garrett Hedlund plays Dean Moriarty, Stewart will play his wife Marylou. Sam Riley will also be in the film, which has an array of international producers. aiming for an August start date. It feels like Salles has been trying to get the movie going forever and while the drawing power of the Twilight cast hasn’t yet translated to box office on films outside the franchise, it’s hard not to like a young actress who is using her currency to do something cool, whether it seems like a big commercial bet or not.
