Cruise’s Valkyrie Requires Reshoots

A key scene in the Tom Cruise World War II thriller “Valkyrie” will have to be re-shot after footage was damaged in processing reports Reuters.

“Valkyrie” director Bryan Singer and United Artists had to spend months negotiating with German authorities to get permission to shoot at a key historical site in Berlin, the Bendler-Block, where Nazi Colonel Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg and his fellow conspirators plotted to kill Hitler and where they eventually were executed.

But some of the Bendler-Block footage was damaged during processing at the ARRI film lab in Munich. A UA spokesman said the damage was not extensive and the re-shoot would not have any effect on the film’s production schedule or budget.
