Tom Cruise's Nazi Film Bumped From Summer Release

United Artists and MGM have pushed back the release of Bryan Singer's Tom Cruise starrer "Valkyrie" from the July 4th holiday frame to Oct. 3, 2008.

Singer has yet to shoot a pivotal battle scene that explains how Cruise's character, a Nazi officer who is part of a plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, lost his eye and hand while fighting in Africa. Battle scene was originally set to be shot outside the U.S., but those plan were scuttled. UA is in the process of nailing down a new location.

UA, which Cruise and producing partner Paula Wagner revived last year, wants to make sure Singer has the time he needs. Film had been set to open June 27.
