Tom Sturridge Says Walter Salles Is One Of The Best Directors Alive

TeenHollywood: How was the experience of making On the Road?

Tom: It was extraordinary, just taking on that seminal book, and doing it with Walter Salles, who is one of the best 50 directors alive, in my mind. 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. 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 to do a fight scene. It was amazing.
