Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The Wrap sat down with George Clooney this weekend and got to talking about his current projects, most notably his next effort as director. Turns out he's hard at work co-writing an adaptation of The Monuments Men, a story of the group of allied art experts chosen to scour Europe to reclaim the art stolen from museums and private collections by Hitler's army during WW2.
He's reteaming with his regular partner-in-crime Grant Heslov to craft the script and plans on starring and directing. I'm quite a fan of Clooney's in both regards, with Good Night and Good Luck being a particular favorite.
In the interview, Clooney says the movie is set up at Sony, will have a healthy budget and will be very commercial, a very fun film with lots of juicy roles up for grabs.
Count me in!
