No, Jo. Not one in the book. War zone areas of World War 11.

Possibly not a good idea to write one in either - might cause a Clooney/Dujardin squabble!

Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett, and Paul Giamatti are being considered for roles in George Clooney‘s next directorial effort, The Monument’s Men, about the effort to find stolen art during World War II — but no deal is yet in place for any of the actors. Clooney would also star, and is writing the script with regular collaborator Grant Heslov from Robert M. Edsel’s book of the same name. [TheWrap]

I have a strong belief that it will be great movie. It has all the potential (GC). Very Happy

Haven´t read the book and maybe I won´t, but just see the movie when it comes out. Then it will be the one and only version of that story for me.

I don´t recall reading anything of the estimated artwork stolen during the wars 1933-1945 from the school´s history books. Even though the amount of stolen art changing hands and going missing was substantial. So I would assume the subject in that respect is not so commonly known or remembered (maybe in art circles, but I mean mainstream). For the movie that is a good thing. Catchy theme but not too familiar.

I just watched an excellent documentary, "the Rape of Europa", about the Nazis' pillaging of art throughout Europe and the efforts to protect and recover that art. If you are interested in art and a good recounting of history, watch it. I read "the Monuments Men" and loved it, too. Can't wait for the movie, but it seems to be a long time coming.

Fox Boards George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' (Exclusive)
6:05 PM PDT 10/24/2012 by Kim Masters

Sony Pictures, under financial constraints, is looking to Fox for co-financing and international distribution of Clooney's World War II art-heist pic; Paramount eyes an Adam Sandler comedy.

Sony Pictures, having pushed a number of movies into future release dates, now has agreed to split the upcoming George Clooney drama Monuments Men with Fox, multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
Fox will pick up half the financing and distribute Monuments internationally. Clooney first discussed the project with Fox earlier this year while working with the studio to promote The Descendants for awards, but Sony came in as the backer. The picture, set in the World War II era, involves a plot to protect stolen art from destruction by the Nazis. Cate Blanchett is attached as the female lead, and Bill Murray is said to be attached as well.
Sources say Fox explored the idea of acquiring the project outright but Sony, which is said to be operating under significant financial restraint at least through March, held onto half. The budget is said to be something north of $50 million.
Meanwhile, sources say Paramount is looking at an upcoming Adam Sandler project that many insiders believed would have gone to Sony based on the comic actor's long relationship with the studio. The film is described as a broad comedy that will follow Grown-Ups 2, which is set for release next summer.
Sony declined to comment.

Another write up:

George Clooney’s ‘Monuments Men’ Will Star Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett; Gets Split Between Sony and Fox
Posted on Friday, October 26th, 2012 by Germain Lussier

George Clooney is no stranger to criminal activities. With films like Ocean’s Eleven, From Dusk Till Dawn, and Out of Sight, more often than you might remember, he plays a character who steals or kills for a living. Does that make him the perfect person to direct a film on the subject?

Earlier this year, Clooney signed on to star and direct Monuments Men, the true story of art historians who attempted to protect the world’s greatest pieces of art from a thieving Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. He’s been trying to get the film together (along with another movie) and it seems that Sony has now agreed to split the cost of this one with 20th Century Fox. That should help get the film going sooner, as well the attachment of Cate Blanchett and Bill Murray in unspecified roles.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote about the latest update on the film, citing that Sony has been shuffling around their schedule in efforts to save money (a fact Deadline hypothesizes has to do with Ghostbusters 3 shooting next year).

Here’s the description of Monuments Men from Amazon, which reportedly will cost around $50 million:
At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: “degenerate” works he despised. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Momuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture. Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this fascinating account follows six Monuments Men and their impossible mission to save the world’s great art from the Nazis.

It sounds like a real life Oceans Twelve with half the members, and real life or death consequences. I’m so very all-in with this concept, blending collectibles and history with Hollywood thrills. Argo immediately comes to mind, and that film’s success (also directed by a prominent actor) probably is helping push the film together.

Are you surprised Sony is splitting the film with Fox? Do you wish more studios would do such a thing? And what about George Clooney teaming with Blanchett and Murray?

While I still have power and am hunkered down thought I would post about the casting from Deadline:


George Clooney Sets Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin For WWII Drama ‘Monuments Men’



What a killer cast George Clooney has put together for The Monuments Men, the period drama he will direct in a coproduction between Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox. Clooney will star with Skyfall‘s Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, The Artist’s Jean Dujardin, Argo‘s John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban.

The drama, which was scripted by Clooney and partner Grant Heslov, 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 Hitler destroys them.

The film will begin production March 1 in Europe. Heslov is producing through their Smoke House banner. Alexander Desplat is doing the score, and the crew is the same as from the Ben Affleck-directed Argo, which Clooney and Heslov produced and Desplat did the score. That latter film finished number one in the box office standing in its third weekend. Granted it was not a strong weekend, but Argo became the first film to do that since The Blind Side.

Whatever his flaws as a director, George has an incredible ability to cast a film. All those actors are amazing. So excited to see Hugh Bonneville in there (anyone else a Downton Abbey fan?).

Stay safe, sillygirl. I'm in Sandy's path too. So far so good here.

Okeydoke, Jo. Give me a mo tho! -there are no fewer than ten main characters - age range 49 - 18. It'll be fun trying to work this one out. And then I might open the betting as to whether we get it right.

All casting ideas welcome!

Seem to remember that Our Hero met up with Daniel Craig at a restaurant during the BAFTAs. Have a feeling there are more announcements to come......

Joanna I remember The Magnificent Seven, the boys in my neighborhood use to pretend they were the seven, use to crack me up.
Well anyway it will be fun waiting for filming to start something new to talk about.

I remember putting together a list of my dream co-stars with George and I know Daniel was on it. Wish I could find the damn thing. I know it's on this blog somewhere!

And I think it's great that George continues his association with John Goodman. Remember they worked together in Roseanne? So cool!

Ooh, good thinking that woman. I guess it's not too far to fly from LA back to Europe so in theory he could go. I guess it really depends on how organised he is that close to the start of filming and how bad the hangover is after the Oscars . . . !

Well may I join the Daniel Craig party ? (I'm even more in the mood now I've just got my last fix of 007)... This cast does indeed sound good, though I am somehow quite surprised at Dujardin, and I sure hope he's been working on his english (well I suppose after winning the oscar he is on everybody's radar to play "the french guy", but it's somehow disappointing : seriously if George'd only ask I'd name him ten more interesting french actors)

was looking over the IMDB page for this and noticed one of the cast is Hugh Bonneville.

I remember him from Notting Hill! He played Bernie the guy that doesn't recognize Julie Robert's character Anna Scott as the super movie star at dinner. Always LMAO when he asks her how much she made for her last movie and she says "$15 million"

This film casting is looking better and better! Very Happy

Re: George Clooney to Direct, Star In 'Monuments Men' About Stolen Nazi Art (Exclusive)

Did we know this? First I have heard of what character he is going to play.


Understandably, the folks at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum are looking forward to George Clooney ’s next movie, in which the Hollywood hunk will play George Stout , the director of the Gardner from 1955 to 1970. (He was long gone by 1990, when thieves dressed as Boston cops made off with paintings by, among others, Vermeer and Rembrandt.) The movie is based on Robert Edsel ’s book, “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History,” about a group of American and British art experts enlisted to track down European art stolen by Hitler’s forces during World War II. Clooney (inset bottom), who co-wrote the screenplay, will play Stout (inset top), and the A-list cast also includes Daniel Craig , Jean Dujardin , Bill Murray , and Cate Blanchett . Stout, who’s widely considered to be the father of modern museum conservation, was the Gardner’s second director, and the museum still has many of his tools and pigments. Something tells us Gardner director Anne Hawley is hoping Clooney will come by to research his role. Filming is set to begin in March.

Hi, Silly Girl. Yep, I think we did. Referred to in some of the press releases last week.

Having read the book, I can just see him in this role...I'm sure he'll be doing the voice-overs for all the letters he wrote home too

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie here, and I've heard about GC's project for monuments men movie.
I'm quite shy about posting here, I hope you won't make fun of me because my approach is very very humble Embarassed
I'm a 29 year old french girl living in Paris and my dream would be to have a part in that movie. Of course I'm not a famous actress or Marion Cotillard... just being an extra part during 5 seconds would be such a great experience.
Problem is, like many people I don't have an agent, I don't know anybody.
So I was wondering, who can I contact ? Where can I send my CV and pictures ?
May I write directly to Smoke House Pictures or does someone know who the casting director is ? I searched like crazy but couldn't make it.

I hope I didn't bother you with my questions and I thank you for reading my post Embarassed

Totally agreed, when you read the book, it's quite obvious he's going to be George Stout ! Nice to see this confirmed
I find it quite interesting too that it happens that - even though this is an ensemble peice - George Stout is the lead (at least in the book) : when directing he seems to be more often casting himself as supporting than lead (since I didn't see Leatherhead, I'm not sure of how big his part was compared with the other main 2 actors ?)
