Rebel in the Rye is the story of the life and mind of the legendary and secretive author J.D. Salinger. Through his rebellious youth, the bloody front lines of World War II, enduring great love and terrible loss, a life of rejection to the pages of The New Yorker, and the PTSD-fueled writer’s block that led to the birth of his iconic book “The Catcher in the Rye.”
The cast includes Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men: Days of Futures Past), Kevin Spacey (House of Cards, American Beauty), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story, Carol), Brian D’Arcy James (Spotlight, Mozart in the Jungle), Victor Garber (Sicario, Milk), Zoey Deutch (Before I Fall, Why Him?) and Hope Davis (American Crime, Real Steel).
Written and Directed by Danny Strong and adapted from Kenneth Slawenski’s biography, “J.D. Salinger: A Life,” Rebel in the Rye is financed by Black Label Media with Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill producing alongside Academy Award winner Bruce Cohen, Jason Shuman, and Strong.
The film is set to open on September 15, 2017.
