What Pink Floyd Has to do With Brad Pitt’s New Project
Brad Pitt has some big plans for 2022 involving Studio Miraval, the studio near the French Riviera where Pink Floyd partially recorded The Wall.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Pitt — who owns Chateau Miraval where Studio Miraval is located — plans on renovating the legendary studio and reopening it next summer.
While Studio Miraval has fallen into disrepair over the past two decades, Pitt has recruited renown French music engineer Damien Quintard to assist with the renovation.
Quintard said he and Pitt had a Zoom meeting in 2020 about the project and noted, “We clicked. He came to my studio in Paris. It was a fantastic meeting. We talked for hours and hours. He talked to me about his plans for Miraval. I was obviously super excited, because as a Frenchman and a music lover, one of the holy grails is Miraval. I went over there, did my design for the space. We clicked on that side, and we moved forward.”
Pitt and Quintard have big plans for their collaboration with the engineer saying, “We want to do different types of productions over there — film, theater, fine arts. It’s a new Florence over there.”
