JACK KEROUAC’S cult novel On the Road will be adapted into film form by Walter Salles – the director of applauded features Central Station and The Motorcycle Diaries.

Viggo Mortensen has been chosen to play the character Old Bull Lee, who is based on the writer William S Burroughs.

Shooting is due to begin by the end of this month, according to Deadline Hollywood.

Francis Ford Coppola has signed on to produce the film inspired by the beat generation novel. He had reportedly been working on the project of turning the novel into a film for 30 years.
