Jean Dujardin - Jean Dujardin to star in The Monuments Men?

Jean Dujardin is being lined up for a role in 'The Monuments Men'.

The 'Artist' star is in talks for a supporting part in the George Clooney-directed film, which is about a group of men and women who chased down the stolen art of Europe during World War II.

It is based on the book 'The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History' by Robert M Edsel.

As well as directing the film, George will also star in it, playing George Stout, a US Army officer and leading art conservationist, who repatriated tens of thousands of pieces of art from the Nazis.

He is also producing and writing the screenplay with Grant Heslov.

According to The Wrap, Cate Blanchett is being lined up for the role of Rose Valland, an art historian and member of the French resistance, while Paul Giamatti is being touted to play Lincoln Kirstein, who co-founded the New York City ballet with George Balanchine.

The film is understood to be shooting in Germany, Austria, Paris and England next spring.
