George Clooney is getting ready for his next directorial effort The Monuments Men. He’s assembled a great cast that includes himself, Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. You can now add Matt Damon to that list.
Damon is in talks to reunite with his Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13 costar Clooney for the World War II flick.
Here’s a synopsis of the film from Deadline:
“The drama… confronts the final chapter of Germany’s rule, which came down to the absolute destruction of everything that makes a culture keep its standing, including the lives that are lost and the sacrifices that are made. All of this is in danger of being lost forever as Hitler and the Nazis try to cover the tracks of a murderous regime. A crew of art historians and museum curators unite to recover renown works of art that were stolen by Nazis before they are destroyed.”
In addition to starring and directing, Clooney is also penning the screenplay with his frequent collaborator Grant Heslov.
