A RELEASE date has been set for a film which was partly filmed in a north Hampshire village.

As previously reported in The Gazette, Hollywood superstars George Clooney and Matt Damon were at Bramley Camp, a military training area, shooting scenes for their new film The Monuments Men, last May.

Twentieth Century Fox has announced that the dramatic adventure, set during the Second World War and based on a true story, will now open in the UK on February 14.

The film, directed by 52-year-old Clooney, focuses on an unlikely Second World War platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners, and is based on the book of the same name, by Robert M Edsel.

The film crew was in Bramley filming for two days at the end of last May, before heading to Cambridge where they filmed scenes at Duxford Imperial War Museum.
