2008 News Archive - Holidays - Pitt to join hotel design team in Dubai
03 06 2008
As well as countless families on holiday deals, it seems Dubai is attracting some of the world's biggest stars to its shores.
Brad Pitt is reported to be heading to the emirate shortly. However, the visit will be far from a holiday for the actor, as he will be at work designing a new hotel.
The Fight Club star has been appointed to a team of architects who are seeking to build a five-star, 800-room hotel in the emirate.
Pitt's task will be to oversee the green credentials of the project.
Commenting on his latest role, the Hollywood megastar said: "Whilst acting is my career, architecture is my passion.
"Selecting this development as my first major construction project has been a simple decision."
Film fans heading to Dubai to spot the Se7en star might be able to double their luck if his other half is about.
Pitt's long-term partner is fellow movie icon Angelina Jolie, who is perhaps best known for parts in The Good Shepherd, Lara Croft: Tomb raider and Girl, Interrupted.
