Brad Pitt looks set to film his latest project in Abu Dhabi next month, according to reports.

The National newspaper reported over the weekend that the Hollywood A-Lister would be in the region in September along with the cast and crew of 'War Machine'.

The satirical take on the Afghanistan war is based on the book 'The Operators: The Wild And Terrifying Story Of America’s War In Afghanistan' by Michael Hastings, and will be the latest big-budget offering from NetFlix.

According to the report, the Abu Dhabi scenery will act as the Afghan desert, as well as parts of Iraq, too.

The David Machon-helmed flick is currently in pre-production and set for release in 2017. No other cast-members have been connected to motion picture at the moment according to IMDb.

Brad, 51, is no stranger to the country as he reportedly bought a home in Dubai with Angelina Jolie in 2007.

The United Arab Emirates is a popular place for filming at the moment as it was recently announced that Star Trek would be filming in Dubai this October.

'Star Trek Beyond’ – its reported name – is the 13th film of the Star Trek franchise and is the third since it was revived in 2009 with a new cast and under the helm of director and producer J.J. Abrams, who also filmed scenes from the latest upcoming Star Wars film in the UAE.

Last month fans at San Diego Comic-Con were treated to a special look behind-the-scenes of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' which also features Abu Dhabi scenes.
