The Catcher Was A Spy

The Catcher Was A Spy Release Date: June 22, 2018

The movie The Catcher Was A Spy 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.

Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti, and Sienna Miller costar in this remarkable slice of forgotten history The Catcher Was A Spy.
