Clooney is now on the island filming a new TV series "Catch-22", based off the book of the same name written by Joseph Heller.

Clooney has a home on Lake Como on the Italian mainland.

The move comes after it was announced in April that the actor was going to be reducing his role in the production so that he could concentrate on directing and producing.

The Hulu mini-series is based on Joseph Heller's novel about a US Air Force bombardier who aims to fly sufficient missions to go back home and leave World War II behind.

Hugh Laurie also stars as Major de Coverley for the series which has a release date of 2019.
