'The Butler' Writer Making a Salinger Biopic

April 30, 2014


As reported by THR, Lee Daniels' The Butler and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay writer Danny Strong will direct a Salinger biopic that's apparently different than the other Salinger biopic in the works. J.D. demands the spotlight! Titled Salinger's War, the film will mark Strong's directorial debut. Strong also wrote the script on spec after optioning the book JD Salinger: A Life with his own money. The film is expected to cover Salinger's time in WWII and provide some new revelations--chief among them, the fact that none of the broadcast networks are yet developing a series in which Salinger solves crimes.
