George Clooney’s fourth directorial effort, The Monuments Men, has added Daniel Craig to its all-star cast that already includes Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville, Bob Balaban, and Clooney himself. Clooney and long-time partner Grant Heslov are adapting Robert M. Edsel’s book “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History.” The story takes place towards the end of Nazi Germany, as Hitler and company try to destroy all the stolen artwork they acquired during their rise, while historians attempt to recover the work before it is too late. Sony and 20th Century Fox hope to release The Monuments Men in late 2013, just in time for Oscar.
Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
