Hulu is doubling down on the dystopian adaptation business. With the streaming service’s The Handmaid’s Tale continuing to rack up award wins, Hulu is adding another adaptation of a literary classic to its library: Joseph Heller’s novel Catch-22, which George Clooney will co-write, direct, produce, and star in.
First published in 1961, Catch-22 recounts the story of a US B-52 bombardier named Capt. John Yossarian, who is caught in a frustrating position. He must fulfill a set number of missions before he can be discharged, but he finds that the number is continually revised, preventing him from escaping. If he tries to get out of his duty, he’ll be caught in a paradoxical, bureaucratic rule known as Catch-22.
