This gripping, stranger-than-fiction espionage thriller brings to life the incredible true story of Moe Berg, the professional baseball player who became a World War II spy.

A Jewish, Princeton-educated, multilingual catcher for the Boston Red Sox with a closely-guarded private life, the enigmatic Berg (Paul Rudd) was already a man of mystery when, in 1944, the US government’s wartime intelligence agency enlisted his services. His mission: go behind enemy lines in Europe to assassinate the Nazi’s chief nuclear scientist before the Germans develop an atomic bomb. Trading in his catcher’s mitt for a trench coat, Berg must rely on his formidable, steel-trap intellect in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse – with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.

Directed by Ben Lewin, the film stars Paul Rudd, Mark Strong, Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti, Sienna Miller, Guy Pearce, Tom Wilkinson, Giancarlo Giannini, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shea Whigham, and Connie Nielsen.

This is looking fantastic and what a cast!

The Catcher Was a Spy hits US cinemas on 22nd June 2018.
