    The extras fell from a van altered to look like a war-time military vehicle, when a side panel became loose. One man is seriously injured, while ten have been treated for cuts and bruises.

    The $80 million movie sees Cruise take the role of ‘Good Nazi’ Count Claus Shenk Graf von Stauffenberg, an army general who tried to blow up Hitler. The project has been plagued by problems though, as many Germans have disagreed with the casting of Cruise as a German hero.
