The Source Of The Source

October 20, 2008

It would be totally sweet if this actually gets made. What’s this? As far as I can tell it’s an unnamed movie based around the eventual meet up of the three great linchpin beat writers of the Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs involving the murder of David Kammerer who was obsessively stalking a mutual friend of the three men Lucien Carr. If the movie gets made it will kind of become the source of the The Source which is another film about the beats illustrating how their work was an influence for many other works, themes, and styles continuing in modern art today. The Source was a documentary, but this film will be a made up movie and will require actors to play the parts of Burroughs, Kerouac, and Ginsberg among others. I wonder who they’ll pick. David Cross,  has been Ginsberg in the past,and so has John Turturro in The Source. It’s know the Johnny Depp travels with a copy of On The Road in his pocket from time to time and portrayed Kerouac in The Source along with Turturro, and Dennis Hopper as Burroughs. Well, at any rate as of now it’s only optioned so it’s got a long ways to go, but I’m sure it’ll be awesome if and when it gets here!
