A new trailer, released ahead of the film’s screening later this month at the Sundance Film Festival, shows the 30-year-old beauty’s character in quiet repose with Kerouac’s alter-ego in the book, Jack Duluoz.
Bosworth’s character is based on Jackie Gibson Mercer, a mistress of Kerouac pal Neal Cassady in San Francisco, and later, Kerouac’s girlfriend during his stay in Big Sur.
Josh Lucas co-stars as Cody Pomeray, a nome de plume for Cassady, while French actor Jean-Marc Barr plays Kerouac.
Kate Bosworth’s Stunning Natural Beauty
Bosworth’s break-through came when she was 19, in 2002 surfing film “Blue Crush,” which include some semi-nude scenes. Kate had to compete with the scenery of Hawaii’s North Shore, where the film was shot. But her bikini surfing scenes were out of this world.
She’ll be going up against the lush scenery again in “Big Sur.” But she’s more than up to the task. Check out the new trailer below and photos of Kate on vacation in Cancun, Mexico from 2011, where she frolicked in the surf topless. Now that’s a movie.
