Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, Big Sur brings to the screen Jack Kerouac's 1962 novel with a cast that includes Jean-Marc Barr, Josh Lucas, Kate Bosworth and Henry Thomas. You can check out the new trailer for the Michael Polish film in the player below.

An autobiographical work, Big Sur tells the story of Jack Duluoz (the Kerouac character, to be played by Barr) and his relationship to fame following his sudden literary success ("On the Road" was released in 1957) and his troubles with substance abuse. Spread across three trips to Lawrence Ferlinghetti's (called Lorenzo Monsanto in the book) cabin in the wilderness of Big Sur, the story also features Duluoz's relationship with Billie (Jackie Gibson Mercer in real life and Bosworth in the film), the mistress of his best friend, Cody Pomeray (Neal Cassady, to be played by Lucas).
