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.
