First Look: Kristen Stewart & Garrett Hedlund In 'On The Road'

The first stills from Kristen Stewart’s upcoming film, “On The Road,” have been released.

In the film, based on the legendary beat generation novel by Jack Kerouac, Kristen plays Marylou, a love interest of Dean Moriarity, which will be played by “Tron Legacy’s” Garrett Hedlund. In the book, she’s also a love interests of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), the character based on Kerouac himself.

Kristen cuddled up to Garrett in the first of the three stills released, while in another photo she looks carefree, dancing in a hall.

Last year, Garrett told MTV News that K-Stew blossoms in the project.

”[She is] incredible, and in this, everyone is going to get to see how hard a worker she is, the devotion that she puts into her work,” he said. “And her performance is going to be exposed highly in this.”

“On The Road” — which also features Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams, Elisabeth Moss, Steve Buscemi and Terrence Howard — is due for release on December 10, 2011.
