Eleven people got hurt after falling from the back of a truck in a Berlin shooting for the WWII thriller.
Awful happening struck Bryan Singer's WWII thriller "Valkyrie" when eleven people got injured upon falling off the back of a truck in filming a scene for the flick in Berlin, Germany, local police informed on Monday, August 20, 2007.
Reports claimed the accident occurred after a side panel of the truck carrying the eleven burst open as the vehicle drove around a corner in central Berlin on Sunday evening (August 19). One was seriously hurt and had to remain in hospital for further treatment with filming being halted following the occurrence.
"We have no findings to suggest anyone famous was involved in the accident," a police spokesman remarked, adding he had no idea whether the incident would affect the shoot this week.
Based on real events surrounding the July Plot of German officials to assassinate Hitler at the height of World War II, "Valkyrie" features mega-star Tom Cruise in the lead role of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg who fronted an attempt by a group of largely military conspirators to assassinate the Nazi leader. The actor, however, has received negative response from politicians and the Stauffenberg family for the part due to his practice of Scientology, which they consider to be a cult.
