The Master Mysteriously Disappears From The Venice Film Festival Line-Up

Film enthusiasts hoping to get a glimpse (or at least a review) of Paul Thomas Anderson's newest drama, The Master, at this summer's Venice Film Festival are majorly disappointed.

While sources reported that the next film from the director of There Will Be Blood will be debuting at the festival, it mysteriously disappeared from the schedule.

There are still plenty of high-profile films for festival attendees to look forward to, but still, pretty much everyone was

Scientologists Beware! PTA Reveals First Official Trailer For The Master!

Filed under: Film FlickersJoaquin PhoenixOscars

We can't friggin' wait to see this!

Technically, there's currently no official link between Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master and The Church of Scientology.

PTA has been asked repeatedly and has declined comment.

Off the record, most everyone recognizes his new film is a not-so-subtely disguised L. Ron Hubbard biopic.

Ch-Ch-Check out Phillip Seymour Hoffman's portrayal of a cult leader/philosopher in the trailer (above), and we think you'll see what we mean.

Regardless, we are PUMPED for more PTA!!

It seems like six decades have passed since There Will Be Blood!

And from the trailer alone we definitely wouldn't be surprised if Joaquin Phoenix was nominated for an Oscar.

We're totes enthused for The Master to visit theaters in late 2012.

Amy Adams Joins PT Anderson's Scientology Film!

amy adams joins scientology film

They should get Tom Cruise next! He WAS in PT Anderson's film Magnolia. LOLz.

Okay, so Tom is probs not going to do this film or any film with Paul Thomas Anderson ever again, but we're pleased to report that Amy Adams is set to star in PTA's Scientology film!

Adams will star as the wife of Philip Seymour Hoffman's character, who has been described as "a man who returns from witnessing the horrors of WWII, and in an attempt to find himself, he forms a belief system that catches on in the 1950s."

Joaquin Phoenix has also been attached to the film as Hoffman's "right-hand man." Other actors in talks for the film include The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Lena Endra and Laura Dern.

As we said before, this sounds like a very inneresting film, and we're excited to see Amy Adams on board! We know she'll be wonderful!

Are U excited to for PT Anderson's Scientology film? Do U think Amy is a good fit for her role?

Bye Bye Scientology Movie

scientology-movie-is-put-on.jpg

Aww, we're so disappointed!

The Paul Thomas Anderson movie, The Master, that was loosely based on Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, has been put on hold "indefinitely."

What a bummer! Putting a movie on hold is like basically giving it a death sentence!

The movie was set to star Philip Seymour Hoffman as "The Master," Jeremy Renner as his apprentice, and Reese Witherspoon as the Master's wife, Mary Sue.

Co-star Renner told sources that "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."

Meanwhile, Hoffman also spoke about the project, saying "I don’t have any new information. I really mean that, I’m not being obtuse. I don’t quite know what that is at the moment, but hopefully I will and hopefully I’ll be part of something soon. It would be great to work with him again."

Some say that it could just be logistics, however, others are speculating that the Church of Scientology was involved in stopping the development of the film.

With Reese Witherspoon being represented by CAA (Creative Artists Agency) - the same agency that represents Scientology member Tom Cruise and friend of CoS, Will Smith - we wonder if it was just a coincidence that the film has been stalled.

At the same time, Reese is also set to star in upcoming projects starring Tom and Will, which makes things even more curious.

What do U think?? Mere coincidence or conspiracy theory??

Reese To Star In A New Movie About Scientology?

wenn285194215.jpg

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!
