Ever since it first came on the radar, we've been hearing that writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson's new film 'The Master' is a thinly-veiled look at the secretive religion known as Scientology. And now it appears that Anderson has shown the movie to the world's most famous living Scientologist.
It's easy to get angry about a remake, but it's harder to get angry about a remake of a remake. Especially a remake of something that's been remade several times. Word is that MGM has Tom Cruise attached to head up a new version of 'The Magnificent Seven,' a film that was based on Akira Kurosawa's 'Seven Samurai.'
No no, not as a model (though wouldn't that be unique) but as an interview subject, talking about his family, his religious beliefs, and having a stable of high-powered attorneys ready to attack.
Tom Cruise has gone from mega 80s superstar to couch-jumping nutball over the course of his career. With his off-screen demeanor calming down a bit, he's revived his career (see: 'Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol') and he's back on top of the Hollywood mountain, especially with his upcoming role in 'Rock of Ages.' But has his career resurgence made him go a bit bananas again?
Have you had enough ridiculous in your week? What if we told you that Tom Cruise is starring in a 'Van Helsing' reboot and fans are pushing for Donald Glover to star in Michael Bay's 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie? All this and Will Smith on a gyro-cycle in this week's dose of ridiculous!
