Production is currently underway in Germany on George Clooney’s next directorial feature, the WWII drama The Monuments Men, and some new images of the star-studded cast on set have surfaced.  Based on a true story, the pic centers on an unlikely World War II platoon made up of museum directors, curators, and art historians tasked by FDR with going into Germany and rescuing artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves before they are lost forever.  These set photos give us a look at Bill Murray, Matt Damon, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville, and Clooney all in character, along with what looks to be a cameo by composer Alexandre Desplat.  This is absolutely one of my most anticipated films of the year, and I can’t wait to see the ensemble’s interplay when the film hits theaters.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Cate Blanchett and Bob BalabanThe Monuments Men opens on December 18th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Monuments Men:

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, The Monuments Men focuses 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.

    I love everything about that first picture. If the amount of fun they look to be having on set is any indication of the quality of the movie this will be one to keep an eye on.

    Desplat is not my cup of tea when it comes to score a movie, but with such cast, I really want to see this movie.

        He is maybe golden or diamond, still he is not my cup of tea.

        May I ask you your permission to have my own opinion on this matter ?

        And yes, his music is forgetable. I don’t remember a damn theme from Harry Potter and the deathly hallows, while I can remeber Patrick Doyle’s score or Nicholas Hooper’s score.

        I will never dare to call people crazy just because they don’t share with me an opinionon any matter… We live in a crazy world…

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw Bill Murray in a jumpsuit. Before I read the headline, I thought this might be a story about Ghostbusters 3 secretly filming.
