Kristen Stewart is leaving Edward Cullen in the fog, and preparing to star in a big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road.
The 20-year-old actress will start filming in August. For the movie, Stewart will play Mary Lou, the on-again, off-again wife of Dean Moriarty ... a character based on Neal Cassady from the Beat Generation.
Director Walter Salles has been writing the On the Road adaptation for years, even filming a documentary while traveling the word and tracing the footsteps of Kerouac. As for Kerouac's novel, it was first published back in 1957 and has since sold millions of copies.
From vampire lover, to 70's rocker, to 50's beat poet ... K-Stew can do it all!
