Brad Pitt Washes Hands for Pontius Pilate Role
“Blasi’s script reads almost like a Biblical era Twilight Zone episode in which a proud, capable Roman soldier gets in way over his head. His arrogance and inability to grasp the devoutness of the citizenry and its hatred for the Roman occupiers and their pagan gods leads him to make catastrophic decisions. All of this puts him in a desperate situation and in need of public approval when he is asked to decide the fate of a 33-year old rabbi accused by religious elders of claiming he is King of the Jews.”
Pitt hasn’t officially signed on for this historical epic, but a deal seems likely. The depressingly handsome-slash-talented actor will next be seen in zombie thriller World War Z.
Watch the trailer for Pitt's latest film, Killing Them Softly. And then let us know -- what do you think of the actor taking on the Biblical character in a future film?
