CANNES UPDATED: @OnTheRoadMovie WITH NEW INFO AND CAST POSTERS (tom sturridge and more)

Cannes 2012

Let's get one thing out of the way: that leaked Cannes Line-Up was an April Fool's prank, no more, a French blog has admitted. The official selection is still in the head of Festival de Cannes general delegate Thierry Fremaux, who told AFP on Tuesday: "It was an April Fool's stunt played by a couple of jokers."

While we will have to wait until Fremaux announces the Selection Officielle on April 19, of a few things we are sure. One, the Fest opens May 16 with Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" and closes on May 27. Two, we will see Walter Salles' "On the Road" there, which has been screening for North American buyers and has not yet landed an offer it can accept. It's one of those cases where the financeers want more for the film than distributors are willing to pay upfront without seeing how audiences and critics respond. Word is the film two and a half hours long and episodic, which makes sense given that it is an adaptation of the Jack Kerouac road classic. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Garrett Hedlund, and Amy Adams. (New character posters are below.)
