Now that Paul Haggis has his Oscars and Russell Crowe on speed-dial, he won’t be needing Scientology anymore. The Crash director broke his ties to the religion when a San Diego branch showed support to Prop 8. Now he’s reading to sling mud.
Haggis is teaming up with writer Lawrence Wright to piss off John Travolta with the memoir, “The Heretic of Hollywood: Paul Haggis vs. The Church of Scientology.” The book takes aim at the real L. Ron Hubbard as well as current church head David Mascavige. Naturally, the church will fight against this book, as they are ruthless against dissenters. Oprah had better not even THINK about putting this in her book club. (Gawker)
