I know last year around this time that it was announced or leaked or whatever term you want to use that James Packer, the Australian billionaire, who was the richest guy in Scientology had decided to leave Scientology. Now I am reading that when Katie and Tom and Suri go to Australia next month so Tom can monitor Katie while she is filming a role for her new movie that the family is going to be staying in one of James Packer's hotels.
Did someone get him back in Scientology? Did they give him complimentary e-meter readings for life? Did they have enough on him that even he was brought back into the fold?
Anyway, Katie is going to Australia to shoot the movie, Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark. I don't know what her fee for the movie is, but she is going to be in Australia for at least a month and maybe longer. The Cruise family is renting a suite which covers an entire floor of the hotel and rents for $27,500 a night. Lets say she stays a month. That is $825,000 for the month she is filming. I can't imagine that she is getting paid much more than that for her role after taxes and agents. Why would you do that? She is basically working for free? Is the family going to treat it as a vacation? Is that how she wanted to spend her paycheck? What is wrong with a Motel 6? Most importantly, did James Packer really rejoin Scientology?
