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. The package - co-written by Luke Davies (Lion) and David Michod (War Machine) will be shopped in December. People who were mentally unfit were not obliged to fly missions, but those who applied to stop flying were said to be showing a rational concern for his safety and were therefore sane and had to fly. Also on board as a producer is Grant Heslov, who coproduced Argo alongside Clooney in 2012.
