George Clooney will write, direct and star in “Monument’s Men”, a film set in Europe when World War II was underway.

The film, says The Wrap, “will tell the story of a hand-picked group of art experts chosen by the U.S. government to retrieve artwork stolen by the Nazis.”

“I’m excited about it,” Clooney told TheWrap. “It’s a fun movie because it could be big entertainment. It’s a big budget, you can’t do it small — it’s landing in Normandy.”

The project, set up at Sony, isn’t exactly a commercial movie but Clooney is “opposed to doing a commercial film that doesn’t feel organic to me. So if we’re going to do a commercial film we thought, ‘Let’s do something that seems fun and actually have something to say.’”
