If Kristen Stewart is looking to break away from her “Twilight” character Bella Swan, she may have found the perfect vehicle in “On the Road,” her new movie about ’50s beat writer Jack Kerouac. She sizzles in new stills with Garrett Hedlund.
A number of directors are jockeying to land Stewart for their projects after she wraps up shooting on “Breaking Dawn,” Part 1 and Part 2, the last two films in the “Twilight” series with Robert Pattinson.
Stewart is reportedly set to star in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” possibly with Viggo Mortensen (“The Road”) and Oscar winner Charlize Theron as the wicked queen.
The fetching “Twilight” star was also reportedly approached by producers of the new “Superman: Man of Steel,” movie about playing love interest Lois Lane. But it was a non-starter.

“On the Road,” with Hedlund playing Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, a fictionalized version of Kerouac, is about Kerouac’s travels with his friends that doubles as an examination of ’50s era society.
The book helped inspire the Beat Generation, which laid the groundwork for the 1960s counterculture.
