The actor would very much like Hollywood to stop using his beloved religion as the punchline! According to new reports, Tom Cruise and other Scientologists have been freaking out over a new film he believes is actually a thinly veiled Scientology takedown.
The upcoming film that got the actor fuming is thriller The Empty Man, and tells the story of a mysterious group that tries to summon a scary supernatural being that ‘may be responsible for a string of mysterious disappearances in a small Midwestern town.’
One insider revealed that ‘As far as Tom and his Scientology friends are concerned, the movie’s use of a Scientology-like self-improvement system and spiritual organization really crosses a line. The murder and missing persons story’s nothing short of fear mongering.’
What’s more, the 55-year-old is even more disappointed by the fact that some of his close business partners and even friends are behind the production.
As expected, Tom Cruise, who is one of the most famous Church members, continues to defend his religion against the many attacks.
Cruise has been part of the controversial organization for three decades!
‘Tom’s position is that people need to stop using Scientology as a punch line, especially in scary movies like The Empty Man,’ the source explained.
