Matt Damon is reportedly set to join George Clooney's new movie.

The Bourne star is currently in talks about taking on a role in The Monuments Men, which his Ocean's 11 friend George will star in, co-write and direct.

Deadline reports that if Matt signs up, he will also be sharing the screen with Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and Jean Dujardin.

The movie will be based on Robert M Edsel's book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, And The Greatest Treasure Hunt In History, which follows a group of art experts - the Monuments Men - who are chosen to seek out artwork pilfered during World War II.

Matt has worked with George several times, in the three Ocean's films between 2001-2007 and 2005 thriller Syriana.

The Monuments Men is set to start shooting in Europe next month.
