Check out Kristen Stewart in first official On the Road pics

We've previously seen some grainy pap shots from the set of On the Road , and now a bunch of official new images have landed on Sky Movies.

Twilight star Kristen Stewart features prominently, in another role that looks set to prove that there's life after Bella.

She's playing Mary Lou in the movie, which is based on the semi-autobiographical tome by Beat Generation icon Jack Kerouac.

Sam Riley ( Control , Brighton Rock ) and Garrett Hedlund ( TRON: Legacy ) star as Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, the stand-ins for real-life figures Kerouac and Neal Cassady.

On their travels they'll be bumping into an ultra-hip cast, including Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Elisabeth Moss, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi.

Director Walter Salles has form with road movies, having previously been behind two blinding entries in the genre: Central Station and The Motorcycle Diaries .

As well as the shot of Kristen above, there are two more new snaps below:

On the Road is due to be released later this year.
