Ever-so-flattering paparazzi shot of Fiona Dourif ('True Blood') on set.

Ever-so-flattering paparazzi shot of Fiona Dourif ('True Blood') on set.

Director Paul Thomas Anderson (“There Will Be Blood,” “Magnolia,” “Punch-Drunk Love,” “Boogie Nights”) has been filming scenes from his latest project, “The Master,” at the eerie, run-down and mostly abandoned Hillside Elementary School (Le Roy/ La Loma, not far from the Foothill dorms) since Friday.

Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as a WWII veteran who returns from war and creates a new belief system (read: cult) out of his post-war soul-searching. Joaquin Phoenix’s character becomes his right-hand man who later questions the “religion” he has helped create.

Before the film was officially titled, the Scientology parallels (Hoffman’s character was loosely based on Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard) led to a few inevitable nicknames:  ”‘Untitled Scientology Project’ or ‘Untitled PTA Pisses Off Tom Cruise Project’ or any other nonsense.”‘

Other actors/actresses you might spot on set or at the Claremont Hotel if you lurk creepily enough (or have a very long telephoto lens) include Amy Adams, Laura Dern, Josh Close, Lena Endre and David Warshofski.
