Brad Pitt Calls Passion Of Christ ‘Propaganda’


Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ really did hit a nerve with some people it seems.  Over ten years after its release, the triggerin’ just doesn’t seem to want to abate.  The latest episode comes from chief metrosexual Brad Pitt. From an article at IndieWire;

For the New York Times Style Magazine, Man Booker Prize-winning author Marlon James sat down with actor Brad Pitt and published his musings entitled “Five or Six Things I Didn’t Know About Brad Pitt.” In the interview, Pitt mentions that he’d like to make a film about Pontius Pilate and says that the film “won’t be for the ‘Passion’ crowd.” When James mentions that “The Passion of the Christ” drove him out of the church, Pitt laughs and responds, “I felt like I was just watching an L. Ron Hubbard propaganda film.”

I wonder if such a movie was made about a different movie, would Pitt dare to scoff How many movies has Brad Pitt directed?  Oh wait, that’s his wife’s role.  Anyway, Mr. Gibson is moving forward with a sequel to Passion, which should be good.
