Nicholas Hoult to star as JD Salinger in “REBEL IN THE RYE”

REBEL IN THE RYE takes us on a journey into the life and mind of the legendary and secretive author and tells the story of the birth of The Catcher in the Rye. As the author who captivated a generation, JD Salinger soared to the heights of the literary world but left it all behind for a life of seclusion. Through his rebellious youth, the bloody front lines of World War 2, enduring great love and terrible loss, a life of rejection to the pages of The New Yorker, and the PTSD-fueled writer’s block which led to a spiritual awakening.

Written and directed by Strong, the screenplay was adapted from the Kenneth Slawenski biography, JD Salinger: A Life.
