J.D. Salinger made certain no one would ever make a film of his book “The Catcher in the Rye”… or so he thought.
Turns out rock bad boy band The No Talent Ass Clowns will produce a film version of Salinger’s famous book and have hinted that teen heartthrob (and confirmed major pothead) Justin Bieber will take on the difficult role of Holden Caulfield.
“Yeah, we’re f**king doing it. Respectfully, we say screw Salinger and screw his estate!” shouted front man Lars Gunblade during a press conference held at Consumption Auditorium in Kings Nose, NJ. “We’re not afraid to shoot this movie and no one–and I mean no one–can stop us.”
“Yeah, we had to do some things to get away with this,” said guitar player Vas Defrens. “Justin Bieber is going to play a guy named ‘Holden Crawfeld.’ That way, we’re totally cool and they can’t sue us. That how some German dude got away with filming Dracula. The filmmaker just called him Count Orlok instead. If it worked then, it will work now. That’s how smart we are.”
“It’s going to be a great movie,” said bass player Carnage Smith, “and it’ll be an even better video game. ‘The Catcher in the Rye’ game for PS4 is going to be awesome, dude.”
The band refused to reveal any further details about the film project. “When’s it coming out?” asked drummer Joey Van Dundro. “You’ll find out, OK, bitch? Just shut up with all the questions already!”
