Scarlett Johansson pulled out of appearing in the second Mission: Impossible sequel after Tom Cruise tried to convert her to Scientology, according to reports.

Cruise, who produces the action adventures, met with Johansson ahead of casting for the upcoming M:I 3 and took her to one of the controversial religion's headquarters, claims RadarMagazine.com.

A source tells the website, "After two hours of proselytising, Cruise opened a door to reveal a second room full of upper-level Scientologists who had been waiting to dine with the pair, at which point the cool-headed ingénue politely excused herself."

Officially Johansson quit the film because of scheduling conflicts after the film was delayed so Cruise could make War of the Worlds.
