Brad Pitt may move his family to the UK next year to shoot the sequel to World War Z.
It won't be the first time that the Hollywood heartthrob and his partner, Angelina Jolie, live on this side of the Pond.
Last year the power couple stayed with their six children — Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and five-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — at the $16 million Wentworth Estate in Surrey, near London, while Angelina filmed Maleficent and Brad worked on scenes for The Counselor and parts of World War Z.
They are now said to be keeping an eye out for properties in a similar area in preparation for next year, as the sci-fi sequel has reportedly been commissioned.
A source told the UK's The Sun: "Brad and Angelina are already planning for next year and have put the feelers out for properties. They would like to stay in Surrey like last time.
"Their kids are home-schooled so it won't cause much disruption."
Brad, 49, will be back in Britain before then, as he is scheduled to film the World War II drama Fury towards the end of this year.
No doubt he will be delighted to embark on the sequel to World War Z. The post-apocalyptic thriller has grossed over $500 million worldwide, making it his highest grossing film ever, surpassing his 2004 box-office hit Troy.
The stars, who have had a difficult year, also seem to have enjoyed promoting the movie. They were all smiles last month as they arrived in Japan with Pax, Knox and Vivienne, stopping to sign autographs and pose for photographs. Angelina was the picture of health after undergoing a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer at the beginning of the year.
