Scientology Strikes Back At Louis Theroux
Ahead of Louis Theroux’s eagerly-anticipated documentary on the Church of Scientology, Theroux has announced that apparently Scientology is retaliating with a documentary about him.
Just been informed by Scientology lawyers that Scientology is working on a documentary about me. Little bit excited; little bit nervous.

This, of course, sparked this pretty hilarious response:
@louistheroux If they don't call it "Theroux The Looking Glass" they need a talking to.

Theroux’s new documentary, Stairway to Heaven: Louis Theroux and the Church of Scientology, is expected to air later this year.
When calling for Scientologist volunteers to help him with research for the project, Theroux said, “The idea is it for it to be a non-judgmental inquiry into Scientology beliefs and practices, from inside the Church.”
No word yet on whether the Church of Scientology’s documentary about Theroux will share the same sentiment.
