The film is set in Italy during WWII and tells the story of a U.S. Air Force flyer named Yossarian, who is ordered to keep increasing the number of risky missions he must fly to complete his service. Clooney's producing partner Grant Heslov will also direct a portion of the series.

The role will mark Clooney's first regular television role since he broke out on the medical drama "E.R." in the early 1990s. In the forthcoming TV series, Clooney will step into Balsam's shoes to play Colonel Cathcart, the ambitious and ruthless officer in charge of Yossarian's squadron. Joining in on the adaptation duties is Luke Davies and David Michod.

You can miss Catch-22, but if you do, George Clooney won't be happy. His TV credits include Memphis Beat, Roseanne, Sisters and The Facts of Life. He's previously directed six feature films, including Good Night, And Good Luck and Ides Of March. His directing credits include Suburbicon, which he also wrote and produced; The Monuments Men, The Ides of March, Leatherheads, Good Night, and Good Luck and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Johnny Depp is pictured as the villainous Gellert Grindelwald , following his brief appearance at the end of the first movie. The movie was a hit success (obviousl!) and it was indeed fantastic and included many magical beasts.

Clooney and Heslov are repped by CAA.

Yossarian's only way to avoid the missions is to declare insanity, but the only way to prove insanity is a willingness to embark on risky missions, thus creating the novel's absurd Catch-22. So far, it has not been revealed when or how the Paramount TV and Anonymous Content project will air once it is ready.
