For the village of Fingest, it's generally not every day that George Clooney and Matt Damon roll into town...

Until recently, of course.

Now the 400 residents of the quaint Buckinghamshire village have the pleasure of the Hollywood A-lister and his pals as they film their latest movie among their chocolate box cottages.


The cast and crew brought the rural spot to a standstill with their horse and cart for the filming of 'Monument Men', which Clooney is both starring in and directing.

It's among a series of locations being used by the production across Hampshire, Buckinghamshire and Surrey, with scenes also being shot in Germany.



The plot tells the true story of an Allied group of historians and art experts who were tasked with saving items of cultural significance from destruction by the Nazis during World War II.

It features a stunning cast, including Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and Bill Murray alongside Clooney and Damon.

It's due out in the UK in December.
