After a long wait, we’ve finally got distribution news on Walter Salles‘ Cannes-bound adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s landmark novel On the Road. IFC Films and Sundance Selects will release the drama, starring Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Amy Adams and more, this fall with no specific date set yet. With it’s film festival debut occurring in just a short time, stay tuned for our coverage. [Variety]
In additional IFC Films news, they’ve announced a release date for Josh Radnor’s Happythankyoumoreplease follow-up, one that is thankfully much better than that debut. Liberal Arts, starring Radnor, the always excellent Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Jenkins and Allison Janney, along with a surprisingly funny bit part from Zac Efron. The dramedy will arrive on September 14th, alongside another Sundance film For a Good Time, Call… as well as Finding Nemo 3D and Resident Evil: Retribution. One can read our positive review here.
In other release date news, Walter Hill‘s Sylvester Stallone actioner Bullet to the Head has been set for a February 1st, 2013 release. The film was set to be released this April, with even a trailer ready to be shown, but it was pulled at the last moment. These delays usually aren’t promising, but this one has to be better than an Expendables film.
Lastly, Roland Emmerich has pulled a bit of a switcheroo on his next project. Instead of directing the ambitious sci-fi film Singularity, he will instead focus on the simpler White House Down. The James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) project is labeled as “Die Hard meets Air Force One,” a story of “a paramilitary takeover of the White House.” It has been set for a November 1st, 2013, replacing Singularity.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration.
