Reese Witherspoon is joining Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeremy Renner and converting to Scientology….for a movie that is!
Rumor has it that Reese is in talks to join Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama based on the history of Scientology.
The film is unofficially titled The Master and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jeremy Renner are already attached to the project.
Rumor has it that the story will center around a charismatic intellectual, dubbed The Master (Phillip Seymour Hoffman), who creates “a faith-based organization” in the 1950s. The story will also touch on his relationship with his right-hand man, Freddie Sutton who will be played by Jeremy Renner.
As the “organization” begins to gain a strong following, Freddie begins to question the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor.
We’re still not sure what role Reese would play in the film but sources say she’s close to signing the deal.
This project is probably not approved by Scientologists since Tom Cruise and Kristie Alley are not stars.
