Guru wants Cruise to

play  him in film

version of life




MIND guru Tony Quinn has

penned a movie about his

life as the ‘Messiah’ and

wants leading Scientologist

Tom Cruise to play him.

The millionaire has told close associates that he has

sent the script to Cruise’s agents in the hope the actor

will jump at the chance to play the role of the former

butcher turned self-styled modern day Jesus Christ.

Movie maker Jim Sheridan has already turned down

the chance to make the film which Quinn

approached him with a number of years ago.

The award-winning film director is

believed to have been perturbed when Quinn began

to insinuate to him that he was in fact the re-incarnation

of Jesus Christ.


The movie centres on a man who comes down to earth

and is the only person who knows the human race

are operating in a false reality – just like that portrayed

in sci-fi hit The Matrix. The character has to unplug the

programmes implanted in the minds of humans and free

the world – just like Quinn claims to do in his costly

seminars. One former follower Maire Lalor

says Quinn told her that he had approached Cruise’s

agents and that the top actor is interesting in taking

up the role. “That is what we were told but I

have no proof that it is true. Certainly Quinn is

pedalling the fact that Cruise is supposed to be interested

in taking the starring role,” she said.

Cruise who is number two in the bizarre cult

of the Church of Scientology already believes a

strangely similar scenario penned by his Church’s

founder L Ron Hubbard. Scientologists do a series

of expensive courses and undergo pricey

counselling or auditing sessions – to

free their minds of past life experiences.

They initially reach a state of ‘clear’ where

their minds are unplugged of these programmes

before moving on to study higher OT

levels which purport to hold the secrets of the universe.

The so-called secrets were written by

Hubbard aboard a ship while he was

on the run from a number of jurisdictions

and believed to be addicted to

LSD. The secrets culminate in the fact

that Hubbard is the Almighty (but in

his case the beast 666 as opposed to

Jesus Christ).

Another former follower who attended Quinn’s

upper level ‘Mind Masters’ seminars says she

was told that Quinn has been in touch with

Sean Connery – a neighbour in the sunny Bahamas

where he is based –

and asked him to play the role.

“He said the Matrix was the closest

movie to his own script in that it was

this idea that everyone on earth is

stuck in a time-capsule and are governed

by thoughts and fears rather

their own intuition.

“He reckoned that his movie would

be a massive blockbuster with a real

life story behind it and that it would

turn him into an over-night star and

see people come flocking to his seminars

from all over the world,” he said.

Quinn’s seminars run a number of

times every year. A basic two-week

course in the sun-soaked Bahamas

will set a participant back €18,500

while an upper level or ‘Masters’

course costs €63,500.

For their money, clients get to

spend time in the presence of Quinn

– a taxi driver’s son from Artane in

Dublin who has studied yoga and

hypnotism since the 1970s.


In a series of sensational expose’s

on Quinn, the Sunday World has

revealed how the 62-year-old

believes he is the re-incarnation of

Jesus Christ and leads followers to

believe that he can do anything from

changing the weather to banishing

evil spirits.

To date an estimated 3,000 people

have already handed thousands of

euro – turning him into a multi-millionaire

tax exile.

We have conservatively estimated

his fortune to be worth €50 million

and includes a plush penthouse in

Paradise Island, homes in London

and Dublin.

In outlandish claims he promises

that those who study his mind and

body system known as Educo will

increase their earnings by 264 per

cent within three years.
