Production on George Clooney‘s The Monuments Men has been underway for weeks and it seems like the paparazzi have only just caught up with them. These images, from a story at The Daily Mail, show Clooney directing the film, and Matt Damon amongst the various actors in character and costume.
Though it’s derived from a non-fiction book and is “based on a true story,” Clooney and Grant Heslov’s script for The Monuments Men apparently has something of the zippy caper about it. Ocean’s 11 comparisons have been forthcoming.
Here’s a blurb:
In a race against time, a crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art stolen by Nazis before Hitler destroys them.
Could be a cracker, and the cast – Clooney, Damon, Bill Murray, Hugh Bonneville, Cate Blanchett – is exciting too. Something to look forward to come Awards Season.
