Tom Cruises Forced To Re-Shoot ‘Valkyrie’
Tom Cruise’s controversial new movie Valkyrie has been hit by a further set-back after most of the footage shot so far has turned out to unusable.
The film – including key scenes shot at Germany’s Bendler Block national moment where the original action took place – was found to have been wiped when it arrived at a professional post-production studio in Munich.
The scenes must now be scrapped and re-shot.
A spokeswoman for the production company told the German newspaper Bild: “A majority of the film material is unusable. We have to film it again.”
Another spokesperson, Colin Ullman, confirmed: “The production company told us that there were problems with the negative development in Arri Munich, one of the top post-production companies in Germany. The images were wiped away.”
This isn’t the first drama to hit Tom’s WWII historical thriller about the plot by top army officers to assassinate Hitler in 1944.
The actor was originally barred by the German government from filming at key historical locations in the country, and was attacked by the German Protestant Church for his Scientology beliefs.
Then in August, a number of extras suffered cuts and bruises when they fell out of a truck during filming.
