IFC Films has purchased the rights to North American distribution of the J.D. Salinger biopic, starring Nicholas Hoult as J.D. Salinger.
Written and directed by Danny Strong, Rebel in the Rye portrays the early years of the famed American writer, known for his widely-read coming-of-age novel “Catcher in the Rye.” The film, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson and Zoey Deutch, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January.
The theatrical release is set for sometime in the fall of 2017 and in the meantime read Cinema Thread’s exclusive interview with the writer/director.
