George Clooney Directing WWII Film Starring Bill Murray!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

George Clooney is directing a new film called ‘The Monuments Men’, a drama set in WWII time and will star Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin.  The film was written by Clooney and his writing partner Grant Heslov and follows the last leg of Germany’s rule.

According to Deadline, the synopsis reads: In the final days of the Nazi 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 Hitler destroys them.

 ‘The Monuments Men’ will start shooting in Europe March 1st, with the same production crew as ‘Argo‘.  This sounds pretty good.  I can’t wait to see Murray in this role.  And I’ve enjoyed Clooney’s directorial efforts in the past, so I expect this one to be great, which this film seems to be his biggest yet.
Your thoughts?
