Life & Style reported that Cruise has attempted to halt filming on an upcoming film called The Master, because it concerns a religion similar to Scientology and proposes to unveil details about the religion's practices.
However, Cruise's rep has called those claims "untrue", reports Gossip Cop.
There Will be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson is reportedly preparing to make a film that centres on a man called The Master - played by Philip Seymour Hoffman - who leads a faith-based organisation similar to Scientology in the 1950s.
Joaquin Phoenix was recently linked to the project in the role of Hoffman's increasingly disenchanted follower.
Cruise was reportedly approached to appear on Fox's Glee recently.
The actor is currently filming Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol.
