HBO To Air 'Bombshell' Scientology Documentary

November 25, 2014


Arrogantly insinuating that Battlefield Earth may have missed a few points, HBO has started preparing another documentary about Scientology. THR reports that the premium channel has teamed with Oscar-winning documentarian Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, We Steal Secrets) on a new film that "tackles the Church of Scientology and its Tinseltown tentacles." Titled Going Clear, the doc is based on Lawrence Wright's book of the same name, subtitled "Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief." Gibney is said to already be nearly finished with the film, and should HBO's lawyers clear all the stuff about the crazy stuff, it will be submitted for Sundance in January before airing on the network later next year. Tom Cruise is already requesting someone's Go password.
