Shooting has begun for the long-awaited film version of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel “On the Road.” The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. (CBC) posted this report from a city in Quebec that is doubling for Denver. Actors Viggo Mortenson of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Amy Adams, Kristen Stewart, and Kirsten Dunst have lead roles. The film has a $28 million budget. There’s no Lowell parts in ”On the Road,” but let’s hope the film is a huge hit so that one or two of Kerouac’s Lowell-based novels will get made in the city—with a $30 million budget. Maybe “Visions of Gerard” as a Franco-American family drama or “Doctor Sax” with live action and animation—and the flood scenes in 3-D. Read about the filming here.
