LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor-director George Clooney says his World War II drama "The Monuments Men" will be released early next year instead of in December as planned.

Clooney told the Los Angeles Times he and his producing partner, Grant Heslov, asked Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox to postpone the film's release, in part, because they needed more time to complete the movie's hundreds of visual effects.

"Monuments Men" isn't the only film to be pushed off this year's crowded field of awards contenders, The Hollywood Reporter said. Sony Pictures Classics postponed "Foxcatcher" and The Weinstein Co. rescheduled the release of "Grace of Monaco" until next year.
