Brad Pitt Headlining Pontius Pilate Period Pic?

Filed under: Brad PittFilm Flickers

brad pitt pontius pilate flick jesus christ judge

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!

Jim Caviezel "Shunned" By Hollywood For The Passion Of The Christ!

It seems like he's pretty comfortable with his choice, so more power to him!

Jim Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in Mel Gibson's controversial film, The Passion of the Christ, recently spoke out about portraying the son of God on film during a speech at a Florida mega-church in promotion of a new audiobook version of the Bible, and claimed that his participation in the click resulted in being shunned by Hollywood!

He explained:

"I was rejected in my own industry. [Prior to filming, Mel Gibson] He said, 'You'll never work in this town again.' I told him, 'We all have to embrace our crosses.' In my 33rd year, I was called to play Jesus. Jesus is as controversial now as he has ever been. Not much has changed in 2,000 years. Mel Gibson, he's a horrible sinner, isn't he? Mel Gibson doesn't need your judgment, he needs your prayers."

Well, it seems as though it was a very important role for him to take, at least spiritually, so we hope that he doesn't look back with too much regret!

What do U think? Should Jim have been shunned for appearing in The Passion of the Christ?
