Looks like Tom has found more Scientology-friendly business partners:


NEW YORK, Nov 2 (Reuters) - U.S. movie superstar Tom Cruise and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. are resurrecting United Artists, the movie studio founded more than 80 years ago by screen legends including Charlie Chaplin and Mary Pickford, MGM said on Thursday.

Cruise will star in and produce films for the studio, and production partner Paula Wagner will serve as chief executive.

Cruise and Wagner will set the company's production slate from development to production greenlighting ability, subject to certain parameters, MGM said.

I wonder what will happen when/if a dozen or more Scientologists follow the MGM executives out to their cars in the studio parking lot and harass them and demand that they give Tom Cruise more money:

Leaving the office one night, the diminutive Grey, walking to his car in the Paramount lot, suddenly found himself surrounded by more than a dozen Scientologists, who pressured him to ease up on the actor, according to the source.
Following a terse exchange, the visitors allowed Grey to get into his car and leave, but the message was clear. Though he was unnerved by the incident, sources say, Grey stood his ground. After protracted negotiations, Cruise eventually agreed to a less generous deal.
