George Clooney returns to TV with Catch 22 limited series

The six-part "Catch-22" is a much smaller time commitment, but it will be fun to see Clooney back on the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter he will direct and star in a Paramount produced limited series based on Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22.

Joining in on the adaptation duties is Luke Davies and David Michod.

While Clooney has been busy raising his twins, Ella and Alexander, making millions from his tequila company, and going on swoon-worthy dates with Amal in Italy, this role marks a homecoming for the actor, who got his big break on television.

Clooney will be directing and starring in a miniseries adaptation of Catch-22 from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content.

Some of the other cast members agreed suggesting Supergirl or Zatanna could join the ranks of the Justice League . Affleck is reprising his role as Batman in Justice League which premieres in cinemas tomorrow, November 17, 2017.

Catch-22 follows a United States soldier named Yossarian during World War Two, who is infuriated that his own army keeps raising the number of missions that a soldier must complete to be released from duty.

Clooney will reportedly play Colonel Cathcart, a commanding officer with whom Yossarian is at odds. Also on board as a producer is Grant Heslov, who coproduced Argo alongside Clooney in 2012. He is in a tough situation because he hates embarking on risky combat missions but can't be relieved from duty because of the frustrating Catch-22 rule. And then there's the infamous "catch-22": a series of paradoxical Air Force regulations that make it essentially impossible for pilots to be declared mentally unfit to fly.
