^^^Right, between "Going Clear" the movie and the book, "My Scientology Movie," Tony Ortega's book, Lawrence Wright's book, Jenna Miscavige's book, Janet Reitman's book, Mark Headley's book, Nancy Many's book, Amy Scobee's book, Marty Rathbun's book, Jeff Hawkin's book, South Park (2 episodes), countless TV specials (CNN, NBC, BBC, etc etc), Vanity Fair, and a whole bunch I left out, it would be really hard not to know to stay away from the church of Scientology right now.

There are still people who haven't had any of those things on their radar, even remotely. Whatever you are doing about Scientology keep doing it.

^^^True. Fortunately we have other things coming up, like Leah Remini's book, and the subsequent publicity around that.

Quoting because I have the same question. Theatrical release in the USA? Picked up by HBO to run in its documentary slot on Monday nights?

Bueller? Bueller?

From the Hollywood Reporter interview
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/b ... ses-832891
You revealed a few months ago that you’d heard – via your lawyers – that the Church of Scientology was planning to make a doc about you. Do you know what’s happened to it?

I’m not being glib about this, but I think they’re still working on it. They’re probably running it by their legal department to make sure it’s not defamatory about me. But I fully expect it to be released. But onto the internet let’s say, perhaps not into cinemas. But I wouldn’t be the first person they’ve done this to. I think there’s a little film they did about Gibney. They may be doing another one. They did a video about Marty Rathbun, who features in our film. Calling them documentaries is perhaps a little overgenerous. I guess that’s subjective in it’s own way; they are kind of moving images with sounds and voiceover. But they’re very short, about 10-15 minutes. For the Marty Rathbone one they were alleging that he was abusive and psychotic and interviewed people anonymously who would say that they’d been beaten up by Marty and stuff like that. I can’t imagine what they’re going to do on me. Whether they’d actually interview people who I’ve worked with and find things like, "he farted and then left the room." I hope it is that.

Nothing will inspire My Scientology Story II than a movie on Louis Theroux.

Ahhh the LULZ
