    Controversial Hollywood movie to begin filming in Vallejo

    Scenes from a film starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix that already has stirred controversy in Hollywood are being shot this month in Vallejo.

    While film industry websites say the as-yet untitled Paul Thomas Anderson feature film is loosely based on the late Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, a production company official denied that to a reporter.
    The spokeswoman also asked that specific filming locations for the movie not be published.

    A film industry website describes the project as "a 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as 'the Master' whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man."
    In denying any connection to Hubbard, Western Film Co., LLC's Joanne Sellar said, "It's a World War II drama. It's about a drifter after World War II."
    Sellar said work on the closed set will continue through June before the company returns to Los Angeles. The film is expected to open in late 2012, she said.

    "Adams will play the role of the wife of 'The Master' -- the Navy veteran character that will be played by Hoffman," one movie-related website offers. "There are reports that the role of Hoffman's right-hand man who becomes disillusioned with his faith will be played by Joaquin Phoenix."
    Sellar confirmed actresses Lena Endre and Laura Dern also are joining the cast, as
    reported on entertainment websites.
    One site notes the film "has Hoffman as a shaken war veteran who creates (a) religion in the '50s, which ... 'catches on with other lost souls.'"
    Scientology founder Hubbard served in the U.S. Navy in World War II, and after his release from the hospital, founded the belief system in 1952, according to various movie industry websites.

    Meanwhile, several websites suggest some "important Hollywood Scientologists" object to the project, fearing it might reveal too much about the faith.

    Anderson's writing/directing credits include "Boogie Nights," "Punch-Drunk Love" and "There Will Be Blood."

    Solano County Film Office Liaison Jim Reikowsky of the Vallejo Convention & Visitors Bureau, said the Southern California-based film company contacted him for information on possible sites on Mare Island. Vallejo's Senior Community Development Analyst Annette Taylor said inquiries also were made about the possibility of filming on some city streets.

    "They called me and I sent some pictures and they came up in late April or early May," Reikowsky said. "I understand they needed some waterfront and some older buildings."

    Having a film shot in town is a positive for the city, Reikowsky said.
    "It's economic development -- they spend money in the community, money is being spent around town," he said. "It's not unlike the tourist who comes to your town. They're a guest and they leave some money behind. And if they build sets, they need materials, all that sort of thing."

    Besides the $150 permit for filming in the city, "a feature film can easily spend upward of $50,000 per day, though this production is likely smaller than that," Reikowsky said.

    In addition, filming also may be taking place in Crockett, where residents last week noticed about 40 large trailers parked on streets of the small Contra Costa County town. Many were carrying vintage vehicles used in filming on Winslow Street.

    The filming permit was issued by the county and lasts through Saturday night, said Dale McDonald, general manager of the Crockett Community Services District.

    So what is the production?
    McDonald said there has been no official disclosure, but neighborhood scuttlebutt is that it is the same feature about L. Ron Hubbard.

    The county filming permit is set to expire at midnight on Saturday, McDonald said.

    Some catch-up:

    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.

    If I were the producer of the movie I'd be checking the names of the crew were their real names and then checking them against the Completions List.

    There are going to be dozens of creepy clams working on that movie and reporting back to the midget.

    Hope there's a good death scene where a crazy and flabby "Master" screaming about body thetans crawling all over him gets held down and has his ass injected with a lethal dose of Vistaril.

    It would be fappable if it wasn't so disgusting. Can't wait for this movie. Could be the final nail in the coffin for the cult.

    It should be a cool movie however the Scientology connection is attenuated.

    My contact in Vallejo informs me that the crew and cast were well aware of Scientology and reading Janet Reitman's book.

    They could've just filmed from these backstage set pictures. It's perfect. Fully dressed dummies, men and women in swanky clothing with nowhere to go, bare conrete lit by raw flourescent bulbs, fake scenery, fine china holding for display only. The one blond woman does resemble Mary Sue.

    Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead to Score Scientology Film About L. Ron Hubbard


    "It appears as though Jonny Greenwood, legendary lead guitarist of Radiohead, is adding another film score to his repertoire. After his beautiful score of the 2007 Oscar-winning Anderson film epic,
    There Will Be Blood, it is undeniable that Greenwood can do no wrong with whatever avenue of music he goes into. This time around, he will be providing the music for Anderson’s long awaited film,
    The Master, which tells the tale of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Set to be released in 2013 by The Weinstein Company, the film is to star Amy Adams, Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Laura Dern."

    Moar coverage zer gud.
