George Clooney and Daniel Craig to star in looted art film

    George Clooney and Daniel Craig are set to star in a film telling the story of how Jewish-owned paintings were tracked down after they were stolen during the Second World War.

    Titled ‘The Monuments Men’, the film will tell the true story of art scholars who grouped together to preserve and locate wartime artefacts, including seven paintings that will be handed over to two Jewish families by the French government on Tuesday.

    Six of the seven paintings to be handed over originally belonged to Robert Neumann, an Austrian Jew whose artworks will be given to his grandson Tom Selldorff, aged 82. Four of the returned paintings have been exhibited at the Louvre in Paris.

    This handover is part of the French government’s efforts to return all misappropriated artworks stolen during the Nazi occupation. Between 1933-1945, approximately 100,000 pieces of art were taken from Jewish collections across Europe.
