Eleven Injured on Tom Cruise Movie Set
Cruise, who stars in the historical thriller Valkyrie, wasn't there at the time of the accident. Police tell AP that the extras were hospitalized when a bolt on the side panel of a truck came loose as it was turning, sending the actors flying out of the truck.
The accident occurred during a night shoot in the middle of Berlin, near the Finance Ministry. Several streets were closed to traffic all weekend so that the Valkyrie production team could recreate Nazi Germany for several key scenes in the movie. Swastika flags hung from flagpoles, WWII era trucks drove through the streets and men in Wehrmacht soldier uniforms marched.
In the film, Cruise, 45, plays Germany's Col. Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, who plotted against Hitler. He's been joined in Germany by wife Katie Holmes and daughter Suri – and earlier this month, the pair took a vacation cruise on the Mediterranean with friends, making stops in Saint-Tropez and Corsica.
