British actor Tom Sturridge has revealed how he really enjoyed working on the movie On The Road, especially getting to work with director Walter Salles. Tom also admitted that the film took a very long time to shoot, considering there were no major stunts or explosions involved.
Sturridge explained, “It was extraordinary, just taking on that seminal book and doing it with Walter Salles, who, in my mind, is one of the best 50 directors alive. I’ll give you the full list, if you want. It was incredibly intense and long. We shot for six months. It’s quite unusual for a film that doesn’t have car explosions and stunt set pieces to shoot for such a long time.”
He added, “We genuinely spent six months doing scenes every day. That sounds stupid, but in most films that take six months you’re actually spending four weeks getting to go [starts mock fighting]. It was amazing.” Tom Sturridge can be seen, alongside Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst, when On The Road is released next year.
