Matt Damon may join Daniel Craig in George Clooney's film The Monuments Men
Audiences have had the fortune of seeing George Clooney and Matt Damon collaborate together on various projects (Ocean’s trilogy and SYRIANA to name a couple), but if we all keep our fingers crossed and hold our breathes we have a really good chance to see them work together again. Right now Matt Damon is in talks to star in the George Clooney directed film THE MONUMENTS MEN. THE MONUMENTS MEN will follow a group of art experts from England and America who have been chosen by the U.S. government to try and receive some valuable artwork stolen by the Nazis. Aside from George Clooney playing a U.S. army officer named George Strout and Cate Blanchett playing a French resistance fighter and art historian, we don’t really know who anyone else will be playing. Production for THE MONUMENTS MEN will start in March and hopefully we’ll see this late next year in time for an Academy Award push.
Directed by George Clooney, THE MONUMENTS MEN will star: Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, George Clooney, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jan Dujardin and hopefully Matt Damon. (Deadline)
