added: Fri, Jul 21st '17

In the upcoming film "Rebel in the Rye," Nicholas Hoult stars as legendary writer J. D. Salinger as he writes the novel that redefined American literature. Check out the debut trailer for the movie, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson, Hope Davis, Zoey Deutch, and Victor Garber.

Making his directorial debut is Emmy-winning writer Danny Strong ("Empire", "Lee Daniels' The Butler", "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay"), which tells the story of aspiring young writer J.D. Salinger as he attends Columbia University and is struggling to find a subject that he can add his voice to. Inspired by his adamant Professor (played by Kevin Spacey), Salinger is persuaded to write about his own experiences, including his past accounts as a soldier in WWII.

"Rebel in the Rye" is set to open in select theaters starting on September 15th.

Rebel in the Rye follows a young J. D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O'Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life.
