Reese Witherspoon has reportedly been offered a role in a new drama about Scientology, written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
While the actual screenplay doesn't mention the
cult religion, sources are saying that there are several similarities between the main character and Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
If Reese decides to take the role, she'll likely be playing Mary Sue the young pregnant wife to Philip Seymour Hoffman's character, who is titled "The Master." In real life, Mary Sue was also the name of L. Ron Hubbard's wife.
This is going to be good! And PT Anderson is just the guy to make this work!
