Brad Pitt's dreams of opening a Las Vegas hotel have taken another step towards becoming reality, after a successful meeting with property tycoon Donald Trump.

On 15 August (05), Trump met with Pitt, the actor's OCEAN'S ELEVEN co-star George Clooney and Cindy Crawford's bar owner husband Rande Gerber, among others, in New York City to discuss their new Las Vegas hotel, which Pitt is expected to design.

While the group plans to meet again, potential investor Trump already appears to be sold on the idea.

He says, "They are all really great guys - a lot of fun and a lot of life. The meeting could not have gone any better."
