A representative for J.D. SALINGER's publishing company has dismissed rumours Hollywood bosses are in talks to turn his classic novel THE CATCHER IN THE RYE into a movie.
The legendary writer, who passed away in January (10), had long refused to sell the film rights to his iconic book, calling the story "unfilmable".
Rumours in recent weeks have suggested that Salinger's heirs had entered negotiations with film bosses to finally bring the book to the big screen, but the late novelist's publishers are adamant the speculation is not true and the rights are still not for sale.
A spokesman for Salinger's publishers tells Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "There are no plans to sell the film rights."
