USA Today have managed to get ahold of a new bleak looking still from the upcoming adaption 'The Road'. Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy 'The Road' deals with an unnamed catastrophe that director John Hillcoat's vision seems to be fulfilled well by Pittsburgh.
The film stars Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron and Kodi Smit-McPhee. And it appears that even the actors are inspired by the landscape. "It's tangible, the misery and hopelessness and the bleakness," Mortensen says. "It gives you much more to work with if you're filming in that world instead of a green screen.
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other.
