Oscar Winner Chris Cooper Plays J.D. Salinger In “Coming Through The Rye”


Academy award winning actor Chris Cooper (Adaptation) has signed on to play late author J.D. Salinger in Coming Through The Rye.

The 1969 set movie, which marks the feature directing debut of Emmy Award winner Jim Sadwith, centers on two teenagers (Alex Wolff, Stefania Owen) who embark on a quest to find the reclusive scribe. Sadwith holds a personal connection to the narrative, as the story is based on his own journey to find Salinger. 

Cooper’s film credits include August: Osage County, The Company Men, Seabiscuit, Lone Star, and Matewan. Sadwith received his Emmy back in 1993 for his directing efforts in the miniseries Sinatra.

Angel Grace Productions are giving international buyers a sneak preview of their Coming Through The Rye this week at the American Film Market. The project will also be showcased at the European Film Market (EFM) in February 2015.
