There Will Be Scientology
We're not supposed to say this is a film about Scientology (*wink*), rather "...it explores the need to believe in a higher power, the choice of which one to embrace and the point at which a belief system graduates into a religion." (Variety)
The news out this week is that Reese Witherspoon has accepted the role of Mary Sue, the Master's wife. And reportedly up for the role of daughter, Elizabeth are the trio of Amanda Seyfried (Big Love, Letters to Juliet, Dear John) , Emma Stone (Zombieland, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past) and Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood).
This great cast nonwithstanding, the idea of Paul Thomas Anderson taking on Scientology practically has me
squ.....er, my blood surging uncontrollably. Let's hope filming does indeed begin this summer.
