On the Road on the screen

This just in:

Jose Rivera, writer of The Motorcycle Diaries (and, long ago, "Different Strokes"), will team up with Motorcycle Diaries director Walter Salles to bring the classic Jack Kerouac novel On the Road to the big screen.

No cast members have been chosen yet, and the film has a release date of 2007.

Motorcycle Diaries?? Take time to read Ghost Rider by Neil Peart. Drummer for Canada's most sucessful Rock and Roll band "RUSH" . An account of his motorcycle trip experiences down what he calls the "Healing Road". A trip he took from Canada to Alaska, down the American west coast to Belize, back up the East coast returning to Canada. A trip that was necessary to discover himself again and the fool he used to be, after his daughter was killed in a car accident and subsequently his wife's death due to cancer, which he honestly feels was from a broken heart. You want Motorcycle Diaries?? This book tops the list.
