Brad Pitt coming to the capital?
What’s On Abu Dhabi has announced that Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt may be filming a movie in Abu Dhabi, with shooting expected to start in September.
The new film, War Machine, will see Pitt star in the lead role of the satirical comedy about America’s recent war in Afghanistan.
The announcement comes as a couple of big-budget international films have already signed on to filming in the UAE. Bollywood action-adventure film Dishoom will start shooting in October of this year here in the capital and will star John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez.
Meanwhile Dubai has been chosen as one of the filming locations for the upcoming Star Trek film, the third in the franchise.
In a recent interview with Slashfilm, producers David Ellison and Dana Goldberg confirmed that shooting would begin imminently in Vancouver and Dubai.
Although Dubai’s futuristic skyline seems like it would make the perfect setting for a sci-fi city, it’s just as likely that it’s the huge swathes of desert and dunes will feature in the forthcoming film. Rumour has it that the location will represent a strange, new alien planet.
