Will the movie get made?

I found this info on the wikipedia "L. Ron Hubbard" bio page, and also posted it in the Who Should Play L. Ron thread:

"As of 2010, director Paul Thomas Anderson is planning a film based on Hubbard called The Master.[200] Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast to play the leader of, "a faith-based organization that becomes popular in 1952 America — exactly the year L. Rob Hubbard expanded his Dianetics self-help system and established the Church of Scientology."[201] Reese Witherspoon and Jeremy Renner have reportedly been approached to appear.[202]"

I was wondering, do people think that Paul Thomas Anderson will be able to make the movie and/or if it is still in the works? Unless the thing is some sort of glowing tribute to L. Ron, surely there will be lots of opposition by the Co$. But I really, really hope they make the movie. And tell the truth.

I assume that the "Master" will not be named Hubbard and the Bible-like book the character writes will have to be titled something other than Dianetics.

I doubt it will ever happen.. and if they do go ahead with the project, it will be heavily fictionalized. Movies nowaday are made with investor's money and they only have one goal in mind: make lotsa $$$. The script has to be one which will excite movie watchers & critics.

I think any movie producer willing to consider doing this project will have the catastrophe titled "Valkyrie" in the back of their minds.

It doesn't look like it will get made any time soon. It was put on hold indefinitely several months ago:

This entire subforum "L Ron Hubbard: The Movie" is redundant and outlived its original novelty value.
Admin, pleeeease cremate it, quietly without sorrow or ceremony. Sprinkle its remains over the ocean of Opinions & Debate and let it disperse.

Well, the only way you could make a movie that exposed Elron would be to change enough of the details so that Co$ wouldn't be able to sue. William Bainbridge did it in his book "Satan's Power" where he called Scientology "Thechicanity", etc. Count me in if you ever want to make it! I was in a grade Z horor movie and a couple of radio commercials. I don't know if the guy that made "The Bridge" ever got sued, but I'm sure he at least got harrassed for it.


As for making a pro-Scientology bio flick about Elron, I'm sure one will be made someday. Hopefull it's as bad as "Battlefield Earth" LOL! Make sure to use Rifftrax when you watch that one. It's the only way I can sit through it. Elron sucked as a religious leader and a Sci Fi writer. He should have just opened a restaruant or something.

The movie is supposedly back on.

According to a piece in today's NY Mag, a new investor has been found - Megan Ellison, daughter of Oracle's Larry Ellison. She and her brother financed the remake of True Grit. She is going to finance two Anderson films. The question is which will start filming first?

d1684 - While reading your post, I couldn't help but hear the evil laugh of Zurg from Toy Story II. It's a sound and image that will take some time to get out of my head whenever I hear of Zenu.

hillip Seymour Hoffman is better for Hubbard than Walken. Walken as Rinder makes a good match, I think. It's weird to realize that Rinder *did* escape in.[URL=http://shipsurvey.com.sg/ship-asbestos-marine-asbestos/]Ship Asbestos[/URL] Mike Rinder was being swarmed by church investigators.
