GATHERS A HANDSOME SQUAD
| George Clooney is producing CATCH 22 World War 2 television series based on Joseph Heller‘s novel, and that he is also directing and starring in it, but now the rest of the cast has been revealed as well and brace yourself – it is filled with tons of super handsome boys. George Clooney and Kyle Chandler will play their colonels.
|Christopher Abbott leads the cast!
WHAT’S THE CATCH?
|Hulu’s ten episode series will be set in Italy during World War II, following incomparable, artful dodger Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a bombardier for the U.S. Air Force, who is furious
because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy, but rather his own army which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to avoid his military assignments, he’ll be in violation of CATCH 22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule which specifies that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty.
|Kyle Chandler will play Colonel Cathcart
