Also signed up so far are Daniel Craig, 'The Artist' star Jean Dujardin, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban.

Clooney will also star as well as direct, and has written the film too with Grant Heslov, who wrote 'Good Night, and Good Luck'.

The film has been adapted from Robert M. Edsel's non-fiction book of the same name, which tells the true story of a group of British and American curators and historians who risked their lives to retrieve art plundered by the Nazi regime.

The group scoured Europe for items that were stolen, and to rescue important works that Hitler planned to destroy because of his dislike for them.

The film will follow six of the 'monuments men' in the period from D-Day to V-E Day.
