Joaquin Phoenix In Talks To Star In Scientology Film
The actor-turned-rapper-turned-fake-documentary-subject-turned-bearded-homeless-man-turned-actor again is in talks to star in director Paul Thomas Anderson's next drama that’s loosely based on ... the founding of Scientology.
The film, referred to as The Master — although officially untitled — focuses on the story of a charismatic leader named Lancaster Dodd who creates a new religion in the 1950s.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman is said to be attached to play Dodd, while Phoenix may potentially play his main disciple who becomes Dodd's closest follower, then breaks away from him later in the story.
Jeremy Renner was attached to star, but dropped out after it appeared that the project had stalled. wouldnt hurt to see him back on our screens, just get rid of that damed beared ok!
