George Clooney's next film is called "Monuments Men," though you would be forgiven for thinking the title is actually "Ocean's 14." According to Deadline.com, Clooney is negotiating with Matt Damon to co-star in the film, a heist thriller about a group of art historians who, in the aftermath of World War II, go on the hunt for artwork stolen by the Nazis. The film is based on the book "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History" by Robert M. Edsel. In addition to starring, Clooney will direct the film and he co-wrote the script.

"I'm excited about it," Clooney said to TheWrap in December of 2011. "It's a fun move because it could be big entertainment. It’s a big budget, you can’t do it small -- it’s landing in Normandy.”

"Big" is definitely the right word for the cast: »
