    Wandering Eye: Online threats head to the Supreme Court, Batts appointed to White House task force, and more
    HBO has "probably 160 lawyers" vetting an in-the-works documentary that probes the Church of Scientology, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But when the leadersless hacker collective Anonymous in 2008 launched Project Chanology, a multi-pronged attack on Scientology, the church fought back to little effect, as has happened in its occasional attempts to scrub from the internet jokes that poke it in the ribs. This HBO project, though, is no joke: Gibney's take on Wright's reporting about the Scientology's dark side, thanks in part to the eyes of 160 lawyers, will surely be serious business. (Van Smith)
