Alan Arkin will be tough to beat as Yossarian. Looking forward to seeing it.

Yeah, but how many comic book superheroes will be in it??? That's all I care about

Catch 22's Yossarian appears to have been a role model for moderators worldwide who've copied his arbitrary censoring approach. Orr was the book's hero.

LOL. Initially, I found the book frustrating but by the end of it, I was a convert. If you like satire on censorship, try Josef Skvorecky's Miss Silver's Past. The narrator is a self-centered fool but the committee meetings on new writers and fallen out of favor writers is hilarious.

There's a sequel to Catch 22, called Closing Time which inevitably failed to replicate the former's success. Would like to read it, anyway.
