Vorenus & Pullo Live On?? Bruno Heller Wants To Mount ROME: THE MOTION PICTURE For The Big Screen!!

I am – Hercules!!
“Rome” mastermind Bruno Heller (currently masterminding the freshman CBS smash “The Mentalist”) says Lucius Vorenus survived the final season of HBO's “Rome,” and that Heller is in talks to bring Vorenus and his pal Titus Pullo to the big screen. But now that Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra are all rotting away in Hell, with what would the movie deal? Heller might offer a clue in this excerpt from an interview with James Hibberd of the Hollywood Reporter:
"I discovered halfway through writing the second season the show was going to end," Heller said. "The second was going to end with death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the messiah in Palestine. But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end. There's certainly more than enough history to go around."
Will we soon see Pullo palling around with Pontius Pilate, Simon Zealotes and Judas Iscariot at the local multi? Find all of Hibberd’s story on the matter here.
