First Look: The 7 Conspirators of Valkyrie
I really love Bryan Singer, everything he does looks great and is more-than-entertaining. His next film, Valkyrie, is nearly a year out from release (June 27th, 2008) and Singer and crew are currently residing in Germany filming. In case you've forgotten, Valkyrie is the WWII film starring Tom Cruise about a group of conspirators who plot to assassinate Hitler. A few great photos of Tom Cruise as Col. Claus von Stauffenberg were released back in July, and today a new photo of the 7 conspirators appeared and I'll be damned does if it doesn't look cool.
The photo is courtesy of the British website Daily Mail, where you can also see photos and info on the real men, since the film is based on fact.
From left to right, the actors are: Kevin McNally, Christian Berkel, Bill Nighy, Tom Cruise, Terence Stamp, David Schofield and Kenneth Brannagh.
Cruise has promised that Valkyrie will be faithful to history, and this photo and the previous set should confirm his claim. Singer and the marketers at United Artists are going to great lengths to convince us very early on that this will undoubtedly be historically accurate.
With nearly a year to wait I won't deny that it's slowly starting to build some positive buzz. I'm a sucker for good WWII films and I'm confident that Bryan Singer will pull one off with great finesse.
