Look what you’re doing to Paul!!!

Jeremy Renner just gave us all one ticket to Bummersville. The actor recently revealed to Total Film that The Master has come to a grinding halt:

"I was really bummer about that," Renner revealed. "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.

I’m sure he didn’t mean for that to sound like a burn, but what a buuuuuuuurn. Jeremy could overcome it, Paul? Why the hell couldn’t you?

At the press junket for Jack Goes Boating, Philip Seymour Hoffman also confirmed that the project is currently whack:

"I don’t have any new information ‘The Master‘]. I really mean that, I’m not being obstuse. 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."

I was really looking forward to Anderson’s take on The Cause — his made up word for Scientology — and Hoffman portraying a version of L. Ron Hubbard, the author of the classic novel Battlefield Earth. Everyone keep your fingers crossed so tightly that they bleed. It’s the only way this project may get back on track. (ThePlaylist)
