Apparently there's a Pontius Pilate drama in the works at Warner Bros., and Brad Pitt is being courted for the lead. "Pitt is not committed, but it could well move that way quickly," Deadline writes, adding that they've read a draft of the screenplay and find it "very strong stuff" with "the makings of a compelling period big budget film."
