Warner Bros. is swooning over Brad Pitt’s shaggy, biblical bob. The actor is considering a title role in Pontius Pilate, about the judge at Jesus’ trial who sentenced him to die on the cross. The script comes from Vera Blasi (Woman on Top) and would follow “the evolution of Lucius Pontius Pilate from the sensitive son of a Roman Knight into a ferocious soldier whose warrior exploits make him a general and puts him on a political track under the Roman Emperor Tiberius.” Religious tensions ensue, and Pilate pursues public approval by killing the man who claims to be the King of the Jews. Historical figures like Caligula and Tiberius, as well as New Testament figures like John the Baptist, Salome, and Mary Magdalene, pop up in Blasi’s script. Deadline reveals that the script reads “almost like a Biblical-era Twilight Zone episode in which a proud, capable Roman soldier gets in way over his head.” Can you envision Pitt as Pilate?
