Brad Pitt to Play Pontius Pilate?

It seems that once pretty boy actors get a little older they quit taking a lot of the mainstream roles that we grew to love them in, but instead take artsy, independent, or just flat out different/out there kinds of things. In a way I can see why. Now that they are financially secure (assuming they are not stupid with their money) they can afford to take some roles that allow them the chance to exercise their acting chops even though the role or the movie may not be popular.

George Clooney has made a habit of this of late. I can't remember the last time I actually like a movie he was in (that Michael Clayton flick was awful as was The Americans). His Ocean's 11 buddy, Brad Pitt has been getting a little more adventourous with his roles (see Inglourious Basterds) while still doing some popular stuff (Moneyball).

It looks like there is a solid chance that Mr. Pitt could be taking on his first truly villainous role; someone that most folks will have a hard time liking:

Pontius Pilate; you know, the guy that convicted Jesus to death and had him crucified.

It's not a done deal yet, but the rumor mill says it is looking good. The studio (Warner Bros) isn't confirming anything (but they did not deny it either).

Here's a clip of Pitt from Inglourious Basterds (NSFW):
