The 49-year-old is said to be in talks to take on the lead role in period drama "Pontius Pilate", which tells the biblical tale of the man who sentenced Christ to be killed by crucifixion.
Pitt is expected to sign up soon, reports deadline.com. The script has been written by Vera Blasi. "You have the available facts from Roman and Jewish history books and the four gospels, and then you are left to speculate, to interpret the character of Pilate and give him a dilemma," Blasi had earlier said.
