BRAD PITT LOOKING INTO TAKING ON PONTIUS PILATE

You may know of Pontius Pilate, the 1st century Roman leader who authorized the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. And if you don’t, well, you might be getting a history lesson about him in the form of Brad Pitt.

The screenplay for the film, written by Vera Blasi, is said to offer a human look at the Roman figure and, according to Blasi, is primarily based in historical fact (well, that’s a relief!), detailing Pilate’s life up until that order he just never did live down.

Meh.

For one, I don’t know we really need to tell this story. For two… Brad Pitt? Look, I enjoy Pitt but you’re telling me that we can’t find a more Roman-leader-looking gentleman out there?

Maybe this works out… but let’s be realistic. This isn’t making Passion of the Christ coin, ok? Ok.
