The Brass Teapot is a 2012 American film directed by Ramaa Mosley, to be released theatrically in the spring of 2013. The Brass Teapot began as a short story by writer, Tim Macy. In this version, the story begins with an old lady giving the teapot to Alice. The 'legend' of the Brass Teapot begins with the teapot being forged by an unknowing blacksmith from the coins Judas earned from Pontius Pilate when he betrayed Jesus, and is linked to tales of the Holy Grail. Prior to filming, the story also led to a comic with art by Isabella Mazzanti and other artists.
