It’s a shame that Daniel Craig has dropped out of George Clooney’s The Monuments Men. Craig has great screen charisma and he would have been a great addition to the cast, which includes Clooney, Bill Murray and Jean Dujardin.
Craig will apparently be replaced by Matt Damon – although wasn’t that casting confirmed months ago, along with Craig’s?
No reason has been given for the James Bond star’s departure, but it could be that Sony is willing to pony up the cash to hire Craig for The Girl Who Played With Fire.
The Monuments Men is now shooting in Germany.
