Shane Salerno's documentary includes commentary from actors Edward Norton, Danny DeVito, playwright John Guare and others. According to Deadline writer Mike Fleming Jr., who saw an early version of the film before Salinger died, "there’s a lot of good stuff in that movie that isn’t revealed here."
The movie will be released September 6.
