    They should cast the Ocean's 11 cast as the 12 disciples.

    A bio of Pontius Pilate would be controversial either way.

    Brad Pitt as Pilate? Um, okay.

    I hope it doesn't make him a caricaturish "villain".

    Eric Bana should play Jesus, just so Brad can kill him once more in a period setting.

    LOL

    This sounds really interesting and I love Brad Pitt... but it's hard to see him in this role. Maybe he can pull it off though.

    It's all part of the "Bible movie boom" that Hollywood is currently pretending is going to be popular.

    Well they do seem to be essentially removing any of the actual orthodoxy from the things to make them more appealing. I mean from a fundamentalist Christian perspective Pontius Pilate is one step down from Judas Iscariot and undoubtedly festering in hell as we speak. No attempt to humanize him would be done if various Baptist ministers I have met would have their way.

    On the other hand I've seen churches do plays involving a fictional Barabbas becoming a Christian after realizing Jesus died in his place so maybe it is appealing to the mainstream Christians.

    The real money would be to have some feel-good ending where Pontius Pilate pulls a Schindler's List and spends the rest of his life saving Christians from Gladiatorial arena lion shows or what have you. People would eat that right up.

    Mel Gibson surprisingly did not demonize Pilate in The Passion at all, and the movie was better for it.
