Valkyrie is a new film set during World War II that depicts the plot to kill Adolf Hitler by German army officers in July, 1944.
Directed by Bryan Singer and written by Christopher McQuarrie, it stars Tom Cruise as Claus von Stauffenberg, one of the key figures in the conspiracy.
It also features Bill Nighy, Eddie Izzard, Terence Stamp and Tom Wilkinson in key supporting roles.
I recently spoke in London with several of the major players in the film:
- Bryan Singer (Director)
- Christopher McQuarrie & Nathan Alexander (Screenwriters)
- Bill Nighy (Friedrich Olbricht) & Eddie Izzard (Erich Fellgiebel)
- Thomas Kretschmann (Otto Ernst Remer) & Christian Berkel (Albrecht Ritter Mertz von Quirnheim)
- Jamie Parker (Werner von Haeften) & Tom Hollander (Heinz Brandt)
