Let's Not Make Any Mistakes! HBO Retains An Army of Lawyers to Consult On New Scientology Film

HBO is researching a documentary based on "Going Clear," a book about Scientology and Hollywood, and isn't taking any chances with the legal side of things. "We have probably 160 lawyers looking at the film", HBO Documentary Films President Sheila Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Going Clear", by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Lawrence Wright, digs into the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and the influence his church has had on its believers, many of whom have close ties to Hollywood.

Amongst Hollywood stars who are famous for following Scientology are John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley and Giovanni Ribisi.

The documentary is being directed by Alex Gibney, who won an Oscar for 2007's "Taxi to the Dark Side."

HBO anticipates to air the documentary in 2015.
