Guys I'm giving you my translation of the article published today in the Brazilian media:
"Having confirmed the participation of Kristen in On the Road, Walter Salles (director) made compliments to the actress. He said he invited Kristen to participate on the project two years ago, after becoming impressed with her performance in Into the Wild. He says Kristen knows deeply the story of the book and that she remained faithful to the project throughout this whole period that the film was trying to get funding. He says Kristen is not afraid to take risks, especially when it comes to the fervent role that she is about to play. He also says that she could be participating on bigger films but she made the choice to participate on a low-budget movie"
