Director P.T. Anderson’s (There Will Be Blood,Magnolia,Boogie Nights) next film “The Master” has been stopped indefinitely.  This is sad sad news.


The film, which would parallel the development of Scientology and follow, in particular, the rise of an L. Ron Hubard-like figure, has run into problems that Anderson‘couldn’t overcome.’


Actor Jeremy Renner who was to star in this film said this: “I was really bummed about that…It really kind of stalled because when we were rehearsing — Phil, Paul and myself — we kept coming up against a wall that we couldn’t overcome. Or at least Paul couldn’t overcome.”


Philip Seymour Hoffman who was also set to star in this film said: “I don’t have any new information [about ‘The Master’]. I really mean that, I’m not being obtuse. I don’t quite know what that is at the moment, but hopefully I will and hopefully I’ll be part of something soon. It would be great to work with him again.”


Now I am not sure why this is happened.  Lots of guesses and theories can be made and hopefully one day this movie will see the light of production day again.


What do you think?
