Paul Thomas Anderson's Scientology Film Gets Indefinitely Postponed

pta_120.jpgLooks like Jeremy Renner's schedule just got slightly less complicated. According to the actor, Paul Thomas Anderson's much-anticipated Scientology film The Master -- which would have starred Philip Seymour Hoffman as a cult leader in the vein of L. Ron Hubbard -- has been thrown into development hell. "I was really bummed about that," Renner told the print edition of Total Film. "It really kind of stalled because when we were rehearsing -- Phil, Paul and myself -- we kept coming up against a wall that we couldn't overcome. Or at least Paul couldn't overcome." Don't worry: You can overcome by watching There Will Be Blood again. [Total Film via The Playlist]

    Great. Whose milkshake am I supposed to drink now?

  • Bronson says:

    Tom Cruise has a milkshake he'd be more than happy to let you drink.

  • The Winchester says:

    I'm not falling for that one again.
    Fool me once...

  • Vernon says:

    That's actually Kool-Aid.

  • I'd just like to say the following. The church does not condone such actions and we will do whatever it takes (in a solely legal matter of course) to stop such things.
    On a side note, I love curling up with my lover Dan and enjoying a nice wine whilst watching you people throw wild accusations at our organization.
    The Cult of $cientology will prevail as we always have and always shall do.

  • Dick D. says:

    BULLSHIT. The scientology wackjobs called some of their jew friends and put the end to this thing.

  • Justin Dick says:

    Scientology is notorious in the social research world for not allowing outsiders of the church to interview or gain information about the workings of their organization, and even harrasing those who do divulge information about their organization. It is not a suprise that "somehow" the film has hit a road block. As an outsider looking in I would credit this to the large influence of the church in Hollywood which consists of much more than those two goons name Tom Cruise and John Travolta, then again they probably have some whacky alien names as well like glom-glar and shuf-gus. If the producers have enough balls and money to get through these roadblocks then I'm sure the movie will be good and people will go see it. Everyone should probably wear an aluminum foil hat to the theater so they don't get shot with some ray gun that glom glar got from some alien time machine.
