Hulu releases Catch-22 trailer starring Kyle Chandler, George Clooney

Catch-22 George Clooney

Joseph Heller's 1961 novel takes a look into the machinery of war and the absurdity of it, by telling the story of Yossarian (Christopher Abbott), a bombardier in World War II, and his commanding officer, the insane Colonel Cathcart (Kyle Chandler). The upcoming adaptation was written by Luke Davis and David Michod, and will be co-directed by Clooney, Grant Heslov (Argo) and Ellen Kuras (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and produced by Paramount Television, Smokehouse Pictures and Anonymous Content. Davis, Michod, Clooney, Kuras, and Heslov will co-produce alongside Richard Brown and Steve Golin. Girls alum Christopher Abbott stars as Yossarian, a U.S. Air Force bombardier in World War II who is furious not only at the enemy who continues trying to kill him, but also at his own army which regularly puts him in harm's way. Based on Joseph Heller's 1961 literary classic of the same name, Catch-22 is both war satire and tragedy, giving Americans a deeply cynical perspective on what Heller saw as the needless loss of lives during a war that until than had been depicted as exclusively a noble effort. Admittedly, Catch-22 is the darkest of comedies, but Heller was able to thread his sharp anti-war commentary through an absurdist narrative while maintaining a melancholic tone befitting the tragedies of war.
