Director Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouc’s famous novel will “burn, burn, burn” on Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI Home Video is preparing ‘On the Road’ for Blu-ray [and DVD – ed] on July 30.

Based on Jack Kerouc’s beloved American novel, ‘On The Road’ is the story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), an aspiring New York writer, and Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Sal and Dean bond instantly upon meeting. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.

Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price have not been revealed yet.

‘On the Road’ with Garrett Hedlund

Garrett Hedlund is going to be a star. The last time I felt this way about an actor in a less than stellar spotlight was after catching Heath Ledger in the double feature of 10 Things I Hate About You and A Knight’s Tale. They’re a pair of largely forgettable movies that pop up on cable from time to time, but each film deserves a second look (and tends to steal minutes away from a casual viewing experience) thanks to Ledger and that rugged voice of his. It took Brokeback Mountain to prove me right and of course, his now legendarily memorable turn as the Joker in The Dark Knight (with the posthumous Academy Award just to make sure we never forget him). There’s not a day that goes by when I’m sitting in a screening or watching something on television and I wonder what this “particular” movie would have been like if Ledger had been around.

But there’s hope out there because Hedlund has now slipped into that space Ledger left behind. In Country Strong, he was a quiet marvel, singing and strumming his way through this twang-fest with confidence only the best are born with. Far from a wannabe, Hedlund was already a star; we just didn’t know it yet. He was largely left waiting again in Tron: Legacy because that film was all about the spectacle and well, the legacy of the original film rather than figuring out how to capitalize on a star who, in some intriguing ways, has a good bit in common with Jeff Bridges, the actor who plays his character’s father.

All of this discussion, though, has taken me away from his latest appearance in On the Road, in part because the film, for all of its prestigious pedigree, is another missed opportunity.
