George Clooney to take on Nazis in upcoming film
Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): George Clooney is working on the screenplay of a movie which follows a hand-picked group of art experts chosen by the US government to retrieve stolen artwork.
The 50-year-old star is working on the screenplay for a big screen adaptation of Robert M Edse's book 'The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History' which follows a special force of US and British museum directors, curators and art historians who risked their lives scouring Europe for art stolen by the Nazis.
"We're working on the screenplay right now. I'm really interested in telling the story of how these very unlikely heroes went miles deep into a mine and found all the art and returned it," Contactmusic quoted him as telling The Wrap.
"It's a fun movie because it could be big entertainment. It's a big budget, you can't do it small - it's landing in Normandy," he said.
However, Clooney, who will write, direct and star in the film - revealed that the notorious dictator Adolf Hitler will not be making an appearance in the movie.
"Who wants to see Hitler. And who really wants to play Hitler?" he said.
The 'Ides of March' star is working with his producing partner Grant Heslov on the film and said he is looking forward to working on the big budget picture for Sony.
"I'm not opposed to doing a commercial film, I'm just opposed to doing a commercial film that doesn't feel organic to me. So if we're going to do a commercial film we thought, 'Let's do something that seems fun and actually have something to say,'" he added. (ANI)
