Brad To Get London Pad?

Despite them not having a relationship of any kind, it seems Brad Pitt is looking to move to London to be nearer weirdo goth home wrecker, Angelina Jolie.

According to rumours Pitt has "instructed estate agents to start searching posh parts of west London" which gives him "a convenient half-hour drive from Angelina's Buckinghamshire mansion" (let's hope Brad doens't receive a 'booty call' during rush hour otherwise it's going to take him a hell of a lot longer than half-an-hour).

So is there any genuinely interesting news in all this vacuous Hollywood house-hunting nonsense? Well, kind of.

Apparently Brad is interested in coming to the UK to "make and star in a British gangster movie about the infamous Millennium Dome heist."

Now, if you're a regular reader, you'll already know that we here at Londonist love a good heist, and the Dome/De Beers robbery is one of our favourites.

It had everything: immediately identifiable landmark, gas masks, speedboats and really really big diamonds. But will Pitt be able to do it justice. After all, his turn in Guy Ritchie's Heist was bloody awful...and can you imagine Angelina Jolie as a put upon East End housewife who dreams of untold riches as she does the washing up?

Lets' hope, for the sake of our film industry and the good name of British heists, that Brad gets gazumped and has to take his film project back to the other side of the Atlantic.
