Casting about: The Catcher in the Rye

While it’s highly unlikely that The Catcher in the Rye will ever be made into a film (allegedly, J.D. Salinger was so unhappy with an early film adaptation of one of his short stories, he refused all future attempts to secure film rights to his work — an IFILM article even suggests that his will prohibits his heirs from selling the film rights), we can still speculate…

Do you think it’s possible to make a film adaptation of The Catcher in the Rye that’s a worthy companion to the book? Which actors can you imagine playing Holden Caulfield? Are there any particular characters or scenes you think would definitely make the film or end up on the cutting room floor?
