First Shots Of Monuments Men – George Clooney’s World War II-Set Adventure Caper

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.
