George Clooney turned in two lauded performances last year with "The Ides of March" and "The Descendants," but he shows no signs of slowing down.
The actor announced at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday that he has another movie in the works called "The Monuments Men" that will have him pulling double duty as the co-star and the director, the L.A. Times reports.
"The Monuments Men" is adapted from the Robert Edsel's 2009 book of the same name, and focuses on the art historians who became heroes during World War II as they tracked down prized artwork taken by Hitler.
"Hitler was an art fanatic, and he stashed masterpieces everywhere," Clooney said Saturday. "He hid 27 Rembrandts in a coffin."
What attracted the actor/director to the project was the story's mix of intrigue and romance.
"It's an amazing story, and [co-producer] Grant [Heslov] and I are already thinking about how great the casting can be," Clooney said Saturday. "And there's also a great love story."
Clooney didn't mention what part he would play, but he did say that "The Monuments Men" is now his top priority.
Ha ha, none of youse guys have 1/600th the class, attractiveness or intellegence of Mr George Clooney and it obviously just drives you even more nuts than you already are. Just cracks me up! Big L on your foreheads!
Very well said!!
Other men can never measure up (all of them from 20 – 90) cannot compete with Clooney = bitter jealousy!
Shouldn't he line up an acting class first?
Is there anyway possible for this dim wit clooney to make it one last time into the Penn St. Shower with Sandusky and that dummie red head ex QB. They can get in one last horse play session and Clooney can be the cather. Whata ya think of that
What a bunch of low-life fools all of you are.....ahh...JEALOUS MUCH?!?!?! I'm half Clooney's age and would hop on him in a heartbeat. P.S. He wouldn't even hire any of you jealous fools to shine his shoes.....let alone you think you have something up on Clooney!
