Matt Damon Confirms Joining George Clooney In Monuments Men|
In an exclusive interview with E! News, Matt Damon confirmed that he’ll be joining his former Ocean’s Eleven co-star George Clooney in his latest directorial effort Monuments Men, a film about a group of art historians and museum curators who are out on the hunt to recover stolen artwork by the Nazis that are in danger of being destroyed during the final days of the second World War.

Negotiations between the two actors have been reported earlier before but now it seems they have already reached an agreement and is now set to begin working together again. And if you think that having these two together in one film still isn't enough to have a box office draw then you have another thing coming. Also among the cast are the likes of Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, and Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. (Whew!)
The film is an adaptation of Robert M. Edsel’s titular true-to-life book and is said to commence shooting come this January in Europe.
And lastly, I know what some of you are thinking, “Why not throw in Brad Pitt into the mix as well to complete the Ocean trifecta?” which is a fair and good question. Let’s just hope that Mr. Clooney would at least make a statement as to why it can’t happen.
