Haggis spent 35 years as a Scientologist before angrily and publicly ditching the cult in 2009 after he became convinced that leader David Miscavige is a violent nut. He hasn't spoken publicly about Scientology since, but a "blown" celebrity (to use the Scientological term for leaving the fold) like Haggis is Scientology's worst possible nightmare
Wright is a meticulous and muscular reporter, so the two men collaborating to tell the story of Scientology from the inside will be a very big deal. The book, which doesn't have a publisher yet, will be called The Heretic of Hollywood: Paul Haggis vs.The Church of Scientology

Travolta distraught over son Jett's death Bitter at Church of Scientology's teachings
But reportedly wary of leaving the church:
UPDATE (JULY 29, 2009): John Travolta's publicist has told People magazine that reports of the actor being disenchanted with Scientology were "totally false".
"There's no change in the relationship between the Church of Scientology and John (Travolta)," publicist Paul Bloch said. "He is a member and it's as it was, now and forever."
JOHN Travolta is a virtual recluse considering leaving the Church of Scientology six months after the sudden death of his son, according to a report quoting insiders in the church and friends of the actor.
The report, in Britain's Mail on Sunday, claims Travolta is so distraught over the death of Jett, 16, in the Bahamas during a New Year family holiday, that he is barely able to function and seldom seen in public.
It says Travolta is disillusioned with the secretive church and bitterly regrets adhering to its teachings when treating his son's condition, which is believed to have been autism.
But the report claims the 55-year-old actor may not follow through on private threats to quit the church because of fears it could retaliate by revealing embarrassing details about his private life.
