Oscar nominated Jeremy Renner was set to star in “The Master” – a script by Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood”) that’s based on the life of L Ron Hubbard and Scientology – using different names. It’s about a quasi-religious organization started in 1952 America and features all the Scientology techniques such as auditing and living in seclusion on a ship – all in all, it is NOT flattering to the organization. Despite the writer’s pedigree, it’s been a rocky road to bring it to the big screen and insiders suspect Scientologists pulled strings to halt production. Ironically or not, Tom Cruise wooed and hired Jeremy Renner to star in his movie now filming, “Mission Impossible IV” (with a promise to take over the franchise) and the shooting days overlapped so Jeremy wasn’t available to do the Scientology movie. Universal dropped the project for puzzling reasons and now it is all but dead. We’re inclined to think the conspiracy theories are true.

    I’m sure that Cruise has made Renner more than one kind of offer. Run, Jeremy, run!

    Tom Cruise made Jeremy Renner. Sex and money sure can turn a feller’s head.

    I’d take Mission Impossible money over some Scientology movie that nobody is going to see, and day.

    I cannot wait for the shoe to drop on Tom Cruise and all of his antics all in the name of Scientology. It will be such fun to behold!

    Spare me. No more of this crapola in the name of religion.

    Doesn’t Renner play on the same (sexual) team as Cruise?

    Great, Janet. And I do think it’s a shame that an Oscar nominee might not be in it. But it still might get made. Maybe. I hope …

    The movie would be interesting if done honestly and without being tied back in any way. I think if any present day movies were made about the “religion” Renner would be great to play Tom Cruise.

    By the way, Tom, in this picture above, resembles more of a wax figure than an actual human being for some reason. I don’t know what it is about him, but he just doesn’t look like a real human being here. ICK!

    OH, and has Cruise ever heard of deodorant/antiperspirant? Those are some mighty large lakes he’s got lurking under his arms. Maybe he’s not wax after all…

    There is definitely a major rumor out there that Renner is …allegedly gay….I’m not saying he is, but since this is a gossip site, you can look it up.

    So, if he is, either Cruise is promoting the rumor about himself….or…..he is talking to him about Scientology. (or both) LOL

    (No wonder Katie always looks glum).

    Missy Cruise has good taste in men!

    If you like that sort of thing, that is.

    I hope that movie gets made. Renner sold out to Cruise, what a joke. I’m sure Scienos are making it hard to get this movie made; and it really, really, really, needs to get made.

    It depends on the plot and how the movie is to play itself out and it is really up to the people that go see the movie and word of mouth is another way of showing the world that the movie rocks and so again we don’t know what we are getting until we see what is in front of us?

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
