Director Walter Salles' adaptation of Jack Kerouc's famous novel will "burn, burn, burn" on Blu-ray in July.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI Home Video is preparing 'On the Road' for Blu-ray on July 30.

Based on Jack Kerouc's beloved American novel, 'On The Road' is the story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), an aspiring New York writer, and Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Sal and Dean bond instantly upon meeting. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.

Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price have not been revealed yet.
