Eddie Izzard


Comedian Eddie Izzard is turning into thriller genre through Bryan Singer's "Valkyrie."

Known for being memorably funny, Eddie Izzard is now making a contrasting turn in his film career. The comedian reportedly has signed on to taking part in thriller flick "Valkyrie", which currently is shaping up at United Artists.

Already had starry names like Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, and Patrick Wilson in the cast, the project is based on actual events happened at the height of WWII during which German officer Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg hatched the plot to assassinate Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. While Cruise has been confirmed to portray von Stauffenberg, it is unclear yet what role Izzard is set to play.

Principal photography on the movie is slated to start next month in Berlin, Germany for a planned 2008 release. Noted filmmaker Bryan Singer is onboard to direct from script written by Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander whom Singer is serving as producer with, apart from Cruise.
