Screenwriter Grant Heslov Talks THE MONUMENTS MEN, Evolution of the Story from Book to Screen, Balancing Humor with Serious Moments, and More

Grant Heslov and his writing and producing partner, George Clooney, saw The Monuments Men as an opportunity to tell a true story with high stakes on an epic scale.  Their movie about an unlikely WWII platoon that went to the front lines to rescue some of the world’s greatest art from the Nazis is not only entertaining and accessible but offers audiences a uniquely different perspective on the Second World War.  Opening February 7th, the action-thriller based on the book by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter also stars Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett.
