BIG SUR is an upcoming drama based on the life of journalist Jack Kerouac. Michael Polish directed and wrote the script for the film starring Jean-Marc Barr, Josh Lucas and Kate Bosworth. A release date for the autobiographical picture has not yet been announced. Check out the just-released trailer below!
BIG SUR tells the story of Jack Duluoz (the Jack Kerouac character, to be played by Barr) and his relationship to fame following his sudden literary success ("On the Road" was released in 1957) and his troubles with substance abuse.
Spread across three trips to Lawrence Ferlinghetti's (called Lorenzo Monsanto in the book) cabin in the wilderness of Big Sur, the story also features Duluoz's relationship with Billie (Jackie Gibson Mercer in real life and Bosworth in the film), the mistress of his best friend, Cody Pomeray (Neal Cassady, to be played by Lucas).
