The 1961 satirical novel by Joseph Heller will be adapted by writers Luke Davies (Lion) and David Michôd (War Machine) into a six-part television series.
Based off of Heller's own experiences in World War II, the story follows the attempts of disillusioned bomber pilot Captain John Yossarian as he seeks to escape the madness and absurdity of war, only to be blocked at every turn by red tape and opportunistic superiors. Clooney's producing partner Grant Heslov will also direct a portion of the series. He has signed on to both star in and direct a "Catch-22" adaptation, Deadline reports.
