George Clooney Directs Matt Damon, Horse on ‘Monuments Men’ Set in the UK
On Thursday, Clooney was spotted calling the shots on the set of his new film Monuments Men in Buckinghamshire in southeast England, as Damon prepped for a scene with a horse and carriage.
The film, which has been in production since March 2013, is based on Robert M. Edsel’s 2009 book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History. Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Bill Murray and Clooney himself also star in the big screen adaptation, which will tell the story of an Allied group that sets out to save pieces of art and other cultural items during World War II.
The film reteams Clooney with his Argo co-producer Grant Heslov. The pair also wrote the screenplay for Monuments Men, due in December.
