The eleven extras injured on an on-set incident back in 2007 have threatened to sue Tom Cruise and his United Artist production company over their cuts and bruises.
Though "Valkyrie" has just delivered a great news with the pushing forward of its release date, it has been hit with another set back. Recent reports claimed that the controversial movie from Tom Cruise's United Artists is being threatened to be sued by a band of extras over the injuries they sustained during filming.
Seeking an $11 million compensation from both Cruise and his production company, the eleven actors argued that they have suffered bruises and head wounds when they were thrown from the side of the period truck used during the filming of a scene on Sunday evening, August 19, 2007. Berlin lawyer Ariane Bluttner has allegedly warned that the group will bring the case to a Californian court if their demand was not fulfilled.
Focusing the movie on the July 20 plot of German army officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler, "Valkyrie" follows Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg as he aids to plan an elaborate scheme to bring down Nazi and put an end to the war by killing the evil leader. Directed by Bryan Singer from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander, it stars Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Carice van Houten, etc. The drama thriller will be outed on December 26.
