HBO Is Turning Lawrence Wright's Epic Scientology Exposé Into A Documentary And I Am Here For It

Welp, I think it’s safe to say that executives at HBO have been added to the Church of Scientology’s lengthy suppressive persons list, as the cable network is poised to turn Going Clear into a documentary. Due out in 2015, the documentary will be directed by Alex Gibney and be based on Lawrence Wright’s impeccably researched book about the cult (yeah, I’m just calling it a cult from now on, because I’m done playing nice) and its ties to Hollywood. But given CoS’s well-known litigiousness, HBO isn’t taking any chances and has apparently hired a whopping 160 lawyers in anticipation of a lawsuit. Hey, as far as I’m concerned, if CoS is mad at you, you must be doing something right. Bring on the epic entheta! I wonder if “Elaine” will be seeing it? [Defamer]
