Brad Pitt Headlining Pontius Pilate Period Pic?

Is Brad Pitt starring in a biopic about the inventor of Pilates? We wish!

Almost as cool, the totally talented thespian is in talks to take the titular role in Pontius Pilate!

One of history's original bad dudes, Pilate is a fierce Roman warrior handpicked by the emperor to quell religious tensions in Jerusalem at any cost.

Spoiler alert: 2,000 years later they still haven't solved that riddle!

The script supposedly reads less like The Passion of the Christ and more like The West Wing: Ancient Judea, meaning Pilate treads water between Biblical epic and historical account.

We won't ruin the ending, except to say Pontius eventually becomes the Lex Luthor to Jesus Christ's Superman.

We're really rooting for this to happen!

Brad made a FINE soldier in Troy, hopefully he gets another crack here!

    This contradictory douche has lost all respectful acting talent and sure as hell doesn't possess the creative power for this kinda project

    I've never thought of Pitt as a great acting talent. He gets by with his looks and unfortunately those are long gone. Usually these biblical roles are done by distinguished actors with great voices neither of which describes Pitt.

    Wow. You really don't know your REAL history do you. Pilate was not a Roman warrior sent to quell riots in Jerusalem at any cost. He was a Governor of the district, and not a very effective one at that. Very little is actually known about him as very little historical evidence still exists that refers to him, other than the Bible, and the Bible is NOT a reliable historical source.
