Tratto da una storia vera, ambientata nel corso della Seconda Guerra Mondiale, The Monuments Men, è il nuovo film diretto da George Clooney e scritto in collaborazione con Grant Heslov.
L’attore sarà a capo di un manipolo di otto uomini con il compito di preservare le opere d’arte europee dalle devastazioni della guerra. Cast stellare: Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman.
Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
L’uscita americana è fissata per il 18 dicembre 2013.
