When it was announced that George Clooney was putting together a film to place himself alongside Daniel Craig and Jean Dujardin, I immediately assumed he was recreating some kind of "Hollywood's Most Dashing Men" magazine feature. As it turns out, he was specifically recreating this Vanity Fair Leading Men feature, as Clooney is now reportedly looking to add his Ocean's co-star Matt Damon to the cast of The Monuments Men. There will also be O Brother, Where Art Thou, The Artist, Moonrise Kingdom, The Life Aquatic, and Fantastic Mr. Fox reunions to be found, with Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, and Bob Balaban also involved in the film, which tells the true story of the art historians and museum directors who risked their lives to save endangered artwork at the close of World War II. Any upcoming films with ambitions toward a Best Ensemble award should stop that right now.
