Hollywood heart-throb Brad Pitt is taking a year out from his Hollywood career to make a documentary about celebrated architect FRANK GEHRY.

The OCEAN'S TWELVE star is to become a permanent fixture in the UK while he records the progress of Gehry's $450 million (GBP250 million) project on the historic King Alfred site in Hove, south east England.

Gehry is best known as the architect behind the famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.

Pitt is reportedly dating his Mr And Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, who has chosen Britain as her base after buying a lavish country house in Buckinghamshire.

Project developers Karis expect filming to commence in the autumn.

A Karis spokesman says, "Brad's been involved in the project for nearly two years. We're in discussions with the BBC and with Brad's production company Plan B about a documentary."
