Ben Lewin‘s The Catcher Was a Spy (2018) movie trailer stars Mark Strong, Jeff Daniels, Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti, and Sienna Miller. The Catcher Was a Spy‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Nicholas Dawidoff, “This gripping, stranger-than-fiction espionage thriller brings to life the incredible true story of [Morris “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.”

The Catcher Was a Spy also stars Guy Pearce, Tom Wilkinson, Giancarlo Giannini, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shea Whigham, and Connie Nielsen.
