Kristen Stewart Talks With MTV News About The New Cut Of ‘On The Road’ at TIFF
“TIFF? ‘How’s your TIFF going,’ that’s what you said,” she teased. “But it’s good, it’s good. Last time I was here for ‘Into the Wild,’ and I don’t think I’ve been back since, so it’s fun.”“I love both of them so much,” she gushed. And as for how the two versions differ: “One’s longer, I think,” she mused. “Maybe they can have this cool thing where they release a director’s cut or something.” (Though she also admitted that such a thing was unlikely, since the film that premiered in Toronto is the one approved by director Walter Salles.)
“It’s so true to the novel, not that it wasn’t before,” said Kristen. “It’s just that now it’s –” she snapped her fingers, to emphasize how tightly and closely the new cut of “On the Road” adheres to the source material. And for ardent fans of the novel, she assured us, this version of the film would be extremely satisfying.
“Anyone who’s a die-hard, anyone who’s a real Kerouac fan, is going to appreciate it, hopefully,” she said, before laughing at the sweeping declaration she’d just made. “Let me just make that grand statement right there!”
