Quoting the gist of a Total Film article, The Playlist is reporting that Paul Thomas Anderson‘s 1950s-set Scientology drama, tentatively titled The Master, has been “postponed indefinitely at this point.”

“I was really bummed about that,” costar Jeremy Renner is quoted as saying. “It really kind of stalled because when we were rehearsing — Phillip Seymoour Hoffman, Paul and myself — we kept coming up against a wall that we couldn’t overcome. Or at least Paul couldn’t overcome.”

“Hoffman revealed in an interview with The Playlist during press rounds for Jack Goes Boating that ‘I don’t have any new information [on the project]. 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.'”
