Who Will Star in Mary Doria Russell’s "The Sparrow"?

Thanks to Beth Rambo for alerting me to the latest on the film adaptation of The Sparrow, one of my favorite sci-fi novels.

Looks like Brad Pitt may be playing a Jesuit.

    Brad Pitt as Emilio? I don’t see it, but then again, I guess I will, if the adaption’s decent.

    I like Brad Pitt as much as the next gal, but he really doesn’t seem right for a small Puerto Rican Jesuit priest. I will, of course, still the movie.
