So they've officially run out of ideas or want to bash Christianity some more?

“....in Mel Gibson’s The Passion Of The Christ....”
I don’t think that the scene of Christ and PP in Mel Gibson’s movie can ever be equaled or exceeded.

Nothing will save Brad Pitt from how badly he screwed up World War Z.

Bash Christianity? Pontius Pilate had Jesus strung from a crucifix, didn’t he?

Pontius Pilate in Mel Gibson’s movie is pretty much as he is in the Bible. He condemned Jesus not because he wanted to, or because he hated Him, but because the whole business stuck him between a rock and a hard place, and it was the politically expedient thing to do.
In other words, he was more like Boehner than Obama.
But the point is that those in a position of power must provide justice and righteousness, not expediency. It isn’t enough to wash your hands if you go along with evil in order to save your career.

So there will be a scene where PPshouts out: “Dude! Like, you know, Dude!”

Tom Cruise as Jesus? Or is it time for a black actor? A retired NFL thug (before he murders) would be best!

The familiar version of Pilate is more or less the one played - rather well - by Hristo Shopov in Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ, and by David Bowie in Scorsese's The Last Temptation Of Christ - although perhaps you prefer Telly Savalas in The Greatest Story Ever Told or Michael Palin's portrayal in Life Of Brian.
And Barry Dennen's portrayal showed that Pilate can sing, too.
