PT Anderson fucks with Scientology with ‘The Master’

Paul Thomas Anderson

Scientology is about to get super pissed at director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood), who is far into the planning stages of The Master, a Scientology-ish story of a man (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who creates an suspicious organization and quickly gains followers.  Others rumored to be involved are Jeremy Renner and Reese Witherspoon.

According to Cigarettes and Redvines, The Master is set to begin shooting next month, though any current information is unconfirmed.

Anderson has been working on finding a studio to produce the seemingly expensive film (rumored at $35 million).  Any of you wealthy readers feel like ponying up and making a movie?
