Apparently rumors have been circulating regarding A-list star Brad Pitt, possibly playing the man who killed Jesus Christ. New reports have surfaced online saying that Pitt is actually now contemplating signing on for Pontius Pilate.
Deadline, which first reported the potential casting news, has a full breakdown of the script, written by Vera Blasi. The movie is more of a biopic that sees Lucius Pontius Pilate grow to become a strong warrior under Roman Emperor Tiberius .
The movie will also show Pilate do what he believes to be right, but end up in over his head. New Testament figures like Caligula , John the Baptist, Salome and Mary Magdalene all play roles in the drama as well.
Nothing more is said, but now that Pitt name has come up, there might be more news coming our way. Stay tuned!
