In a perfect world, the title would be The Source


Lron and the horrors of war...It was probably terrible to witness the shelling of that Mexican island...oh the humanity. The only horrors the ronster experienced were STDs and his performance evals.

Don't have time to follow all the media on this, which has been particularly active with all the recent news on casting. There's a couple of source links in that article.

Mare Island: One huge film set for new big budget movie
http://www.examiner.com/community-in-sa ... dget-movie


Quote:
Filmed on Mare Island off the coast of northern California, the production is making use of both a local mansion as well as the USS Potamac, a former presidential yacht that is docked on the island

Hmm perhaps representing one of cult's previous vessels? The Enchanter, the Apollo, the Athena, the Diana or maybe the Freewinds?

Regurgitated, unsubstantiated rumour....

at: http://www.nbclosangeles.com/blogs/popc ... 19169.html

quoting the previous: http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/ ... 5mm_will_/

Quote:
Industry rumor has it that Will Smith won’t commit to the lead in Quentin Tarantino’s film due to the Weinsteins’ involvement with Paul T Anderson’s Scientology project. And the crew on Anderson’s project was told to publicly deny any similarities between the faith in the film and Scientology, or face losing their jobs. The “challenges” to this production are far from over.

Yeah, just that "minor issue" of him running a school which subscribes to Hubbard tech.
Then fired the head, viewtopic.php?f=11&t=31104 implying that she wasn't into Hubbard tech as much as the Smith's were.

Then the other "minor issue" of him giving a combined $122,500 to the Church of Scientology. That's: $67,500 to the New York Rescue Workers Detoxication Fund, $50,000 to the Celebrity Center in Hollywood and $5,000 to ABLE.
(reported in 2008)

However he did apprently stop dontating to them according to this later report July 2010: viewtopic.php?p=379717#p379717
Presumably he needed the cash for his "hubbard school"?

NY Daily News Poll:

Quote:
Do you think the Smiths are being honest about the school's Scientology affiliation?

Yes, it seems like they have made it clear they aren't Scientologists - and neither is their school. 21%

No. There are too many Scientology connections here. 71%

Not sure. 8%


So, "scientology supporter" would be a better description, as opposed to being an actual member.

Whether his friendship with Tom Cruise or scientology would influence any decision he makes on a movie which has several degrees of seperation between that one and the actual scientology critical movie, "The Master" (well, allegedly unfavorable to scientology), is pure speculation and probably unlikely IMO.

I spoke with a guy today whose brother worked as an extra on The Master.

Nothing else to report except the guy did confirm that this film is most definitely based on $cientology.

The Master Wraps, Probably Isn't About Scientology Still

One of the single, most common things in sports is having the general manager come out publicly and start insisting that whatever rumor about this player or that manager is dominating the press is 100% not happening or untrue. And then a week or two later, whatever was reported usually happens.

At a wrap-party for Ides Of March, one of the writers from Hollywood Elsewhere caught up with Philip Seymour Hoffman (allegedly known as "Philly" in that group) and he asked him directly about some of the endless Master/Scientology reports.

Their conversation:

PSH: "It's not a scientology film."

HE: "But I've read an early draft and it seems to be about a Scientology-like cult...and I've read about the parallels."

PSH: "I don't know what you've heard and what script you've read...Trust me, it's not about Scientology."
So there you have it officially from The Master's mouth. It is, or is not, about Scientology. Sleep well until around December when we'll actually have the answer and perhaps the first teaser trailer.

Some catch-up:

http://joaquin-phoenix.us/category/projects/the-master

Quote:
“The Master” Official Synopsis Released
Archived on November 12, 2011

An official plot synopsis has been released for the upcoming Paul Thomas Anderson film titled, The Mater. The project sees Anderson reteaming with Philip Seymour Hoffman, who takes the lead on this, with a brilliant supporting cast, including Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, and Laura Dern.

    “Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (the acclaimed director of, There Will Be Blood, Magnolia and Boogie Nights), this story stars Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) and Academy Award-nominee Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line). Set in America in the years following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Phoenix) as his right-hand man. But as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor. A truly one-of-a-kind drama, which promises magnetic virtuoso performances, the film marks the fifth collaboration between Anderson and Hoffman, following Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punch Drunk Love.”

The film will be Phoenix’s first film following his “exit” from the acting world with his mockumentary, I’m Still Here. The film is now in post-production, so hopefully we’ll be getting some actual images from it soon, and with any luck a title too.

The Weinstein Company picked up the worldwide distribution rights just before Cannes this year, and though there’s still no word on a release date yet, I’m hoping it will be coming sooner rather than later. ( Source: http://tinyurl.com/d47b364 )


You'll have to wait for some date in 2013 before you'll be able to watch it and determine if it has enough overtones to be taken as a "scientology movie", in spite of what has already been denied by the movie's creator. Clearly even from the brief synopsis, and the era it is set, you can see at least a tacit link. Also to have a character by the name of Mary Sue and to be the wife of the leader....well... our tinfoil hats will tend to tingle more.

Even it is early 2013, it's a long time to wait considering shooting finished a couple of months ago on this $40million budget movie and it isn't exactly a highty technical one in terms of post-production.
On the other hand, Tom Cruise's SciFi escapade, originally titled "Oblivion" (lol), now called "Horizons" hasn't even started production, yet it is also being slated for a 2013 release. At a $100million budget, and already being pegged by the rumour mill as a "thetan" movie which has allegedly got Katie's knickers in a twist, ( viewtopic.php?f=11&t=44224 ) guess which is likey to receive the most acclaim (and make its investors the most profit).

Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood Scoring Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘The Master’
slashfilm.com 5th Dec 2011
http://www.slashfilm.com/jonny-greenwoo ... he-master/
Quote:
After what seems like years of speculation and delays, Paul Thomas Anderson is in post-production on The Master, his film that is either a lot or a little inspired by the life and work of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. The movie stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as the title character, with Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Laura Dern and many more appearing as well.

And now it seems that Anderson has turned to Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood to score the film, just as he did with There Will Be Blood.

[...]

The Weinstein Company will release The Master, hopefully after a debut for the movie at Cannes. There is no US release date set at this point, but a late 2012 release seems likely, with the 2013 date in the tweet possibly either an erroneous assumption, or the target window for territories outside the US.

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays “a man who returns after witnessing the horrors of WWII and tries to rediscover who he is in post-war America. He creates a belief system, something that catches on with other lost souls.”

[...Full article in link...]

Certainly beats "Space Jazz".

Jonny Greenwood Returning To Score 'The Master'
Cigarettes and Red Vines 5th Dec 2011
http://cigsandredvines.blogspot.com/

Quote:
We had a feeling this would be the case but for some reason that doesn't make it any less thrilling to see it confirmed: Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood is returning to score 'The Master.' His work on "There Will Be Blood" was brilliant and undoubtedly one of the highlights of the film so it's an absolute joy to hear that he'll be back for another round. This news comes via a tweet on 12/2 by British record label Babel founder Oliver Weindling that said simply, "Zed-U recorded part of soundtrack for Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead last week. Film (by Paul Thomas Anderson) to appear in 2013." Zed-U is a British jazz trio signed to Mr. Weindling's label that are apparently being employed by Mr. Greenwood on the soundtrack. You can check out a few videos of the group below.

Backstage at Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master'
By BlackBook December 9, 2011
http://www.blackbookmag.com/backstage-a ... er-1.42526
"A glimpse at the costumes and extras for PT Anderson's forthcoming 1950s religious drama 'The Master'."

Some great photos on that site.
Quote:
One of the most anticipated movies of 2012 (or maybe 2013) is Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, his first since There Will Be Blood. A 1950s period drama, the movie follows a drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) drawn into the fold of a charismatic leader (the Master of the title, a.k.a. Philip Seymour Hoffman) espousing a newly created pseudo-religious belief system ("the Cause") to an increasingly devoted following. The drifter finds himself equally drawn to the Master's daughter (Amy Adams). All of these ingredients would be enough to guarantee attention, but why not add some Scientology into the mix, just for fun?

Several observers have noticed parallels between the story of the Master and his Cause, and the founding of Scientology by L. Ron Hubbard. There are few more potentially dangerous lightning rods in Hollywood productions than making the Church of Scientology angry, as who wants to wake up with John Travolta leaning over your bed, brandishng an E-meter and complaining about your dirty aura. Nevertheless, Anderson and his people deny there is any Scientological allegory in play, so it remains to be seen if The Master will stir up audience acclaim or a nest of angry Thetans, or both.

Meanwhile, photographer Jack Erling was lucky enogh to snap a few photos of the action backstage during filming of The Master, catching extras in costume between takes. No celebs, but you can get a first taste of that vintage Anderson flavor.


This guy looks like Hubbard, LOL.....

EXCLUSIVE: 'The Master' Eyeing October Release Date
Cigarettes & Red Vines 6th March 2012
http://cigsandredvines.blogspot.com/201 ... lease.html
Quote:
Well this was not the news we expected to wake up to this morning. Though it's far from a done deal, we've received word that 'The Master' (or Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project or whatever it ends up being titled) is looking at an October release date! (So we can now officially put those 2013 rumors to rest). How did we come across this information? Well, by none other than Annapurna founder Megan Ellison herself, who was kind enough to drop us a line this morning on Twitter.

    @cigsandredvines I know you guys are waiting on a release date for 'the Master', and it's still a bit early, but I'd keep my eyes on October


There are a few interesting things to note about this. This would pretty much rule out those Cannes rumors, which we had figured were a long shot anyway and put it on track to come out around the same time as "Punch-Drunk Love," though that film had premiered at Cannes and NYFF beforehand. Assuming that The Weinstein Co. will want to go the festival route with this one too, 'The Master' might try to score a spot at the New York Film Festival (which typically runs around that time) where 'PDL' and "Boogie Nights" both had their premieres. "There Will Be Blood" had a secret World Premiere at Fantastic Fest in Austin around that same time back in 2007 but it looks like that fest is running a little earlier this year (as are Venice and TIFF) so let's just go ahead and cross our fingers that "October" means a firm release date. Time will tell. Whatever ends up happening we're 7 months away from getting a look at the film and we could not be any more excited.

Check out 'The Master' cast and follow the entire history of the project here.
