Bill Murray Is Going to War for George Clooney

George Clooney has lined up an amazing cast for his new WWII movie The Monuments Men, about a team of art curators and historians rescuing pieces of classic art from the Nazis, but the name that interests us most around these parts is Bill Murray. Clooney wrote the movie with Grant Heslov (with whom he collaborated on The Ides of March and Good Night, and Good Luck), and filming is set to begin in Europe in March. Indiewire reports that the non-Bill Murray cast includes Daniel Craig, Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, and Clooney himself, but all of them should be taking lessons from Bill Murray, who demonstrated he can make one hell of a serious war picture with Stripes.
