Tom Cruise's Valkyrie release pushed to October
12.17.07 by REELZ
Plans for the release of the Tom Cruise-WWII-Hitler-assassination-plot movie Valkyrie have been changed. The movie, which has suffered numerous obstacles to its production in Germany, was originally slated to open on June 27th--right in time for the Fourth of July.
However, director Bryan Singer is behind the eight ball on shooting a "pivotal battle scene," and they are trying to nail down a new place to shoot after the first one fell through. Valkyrie will now open Oct. 3, 2008, which puts it squarely in the midst of Awards season. Perhaps the studio is trying to position it for an Oscar already?
