More Valkyrie Filming Underway

Bryan Singer’s WW2 thriller “Valkyrie” is about to start two full weeks of extra filming reports Hollywood Elsewhere.

Is it reshoots? Not really according to an MGM spokeswoman. What they are filming “is the big battle scene that was always intended to be shot that didn’t occur in Berlin. These scenes took place in North Africa so they could not be shot in Berlin obviously. So they are not reshooting, but rather [shooting] additional photography” she says.

Dennis Rise, the head of publicity, says “This is not new news. We have always planned to shoot a couple scenes in the first quarter of this year. These are scenes which were always part of the original screenplay and shooting script. Because of the nature of the scenes, they were never intended to be shot in Berlin.”

The Tom Cruise thriller follows a conspiracy by German officers to kill Hitler.
