From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Oscar winner and Emmy nominee is set to star and direct a limited series based on the seminal Joseph Heller novel Catch-22.
The six-episode project, produced by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content, does not yet have a network. The package, co-written by Luke Davies (Lion) and David Michod (War Machine), will be shopped next month. With a proven star in Clooney, it is expected to land a sizable fee at a deep-pocketed outlet.
Clooney will play Col. Cathcart, the role initially played by Balsam in the Nichols feature. Clooney and his Smokehouse Pictures producing partner Grant Heslov (Good Night, and Good Luck, Argo, The Ides of March) will direct and executive produce. The episodes were co-written by Davies and Michôd, who will also exec produce. Anonymous Content’s Richard Brown and Steve Golin are also on board as exec producers.
