P.T. Anderson’s Low E-Meter Reading

Looks like P.T. Anderson, one of my favorite directors, got turned down to make a film about a cultish faith-leader.

Universal has said thanks-but-no-thanks to Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest project, The Master—a film set to star Philip Seymour Hoffman as an L. Ron Hubbard-esque cult leader and, potentially, The Hurt Locker’s Jeremy Renner as his protege.

    To be fair to Universal, it's most likely they declined because the film's supposed to carry a huge budget, and not because of any pro-Scientology leanings.
