Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal “On the Road” has been picked up in Cannes for UK, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australian rights by Icon Film Distribution. The film, an MK2 production in co-production with Film4 and Videofilmes, had previously been sold to Tele München Gruppe/Concorde Filmverleih for German territories and Cineart for Benelux. All remaining international rights are still held by MK2 pending further sales. “On the Road,” starring Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, and Kirsten Dunst, is scheduled to begin principal photography on August 2.
