"I am not really interested in doing a period piece that wouldn’t have a correlation with what we are living right now. There is a strange modernity to the theme, and maybe "On the Road" is more contemporary today than it ever was. The beauty of road movies is that they teach you that the further you go from the place where you originate from, the better you understand where you are from, and that is kind of a blessing to be able to discover one’s identity. This is a collective endeavor, so it is the result of that blending of perceptions that will actually generate a film and hopefully this interpretation will generate a dialogue with the Kerouac fans."
