Going by early reports, it seemed that Hollywood star Tom Cruise was distancing himself from Scientology given the fact that he was missing out on lot of important milestones daughter Suri was achieving. But it seems all of that was blown out of proportion because Tom has reportedly taken up a plan what can be called as an ambitious project for Scientology.
This project revolves around establishing a News network, something that is called as Scientology’s CNN. However, according to Inquisitr, the proposed News network is not the only thing the Hollywood star has in his mind. He has also plans to help Scientology to build a $50 million state of the art studio under the banner – Scientology Media Productions. This said studio will be at par with the current heavyweights like Paramount and Universal. It is being said that this studio will be responsible for making recruitment videos and other pro-Scientology stuff.
However other sources believe that the actor has plans to use it to produce and film his own big budget movies. The media outlet also reported that the physical structures have been built and set up by the teams of Scientology. It also mentioned that the people involved in constructing the physical structure are being paid less than $1 per hour. Tony Ortega known for the Underground Bunker website spoke out against the planned media venture by Scientology. He said that the establishment of Scientology Media Productions will be an opportunity for both Scientology and Tom to influence the movie world again. When he spoke about influence, he referred to the time when they were pressurizing Hollywood executives to get what they wanted in films like “Days of Thunder,” “Battlefield Earth” and “War of the Worlds”.
The media outlet deduced that maybe Mr. Cruise is not a poster boy anymore for Scientology but rather he has become the dragon’s head. They also stated that maybe this time, even the die hard fans of Tom will question his actions.
