Extras were injured on the set of Tom Cruise’s new film, Valkyrie, over the weekend, as 11 men fell off a truck after a bolt on a side panel came loose as the vehicle turned.

Germany’s Bild Daily reported that Tom Cruise himself was not involved in the weekend filming.

Nor was any sort of Scientology hex blamed for the incident.

The extras were taken to a hospital, where all but one of them required only outpatient treatment.

In the meantime, filming has stopped.

In the upcoming film, Tom Cruise, 45, stars as Colonel Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, the leader of the unsuccessful attempt to assassinate Adolf Hitler in July 1944. The film does not feature Tom Cruise nude, sadly. Or fortunately.

His casting has attracted controversy in Germany because Cruise is one of the best known adherents of Scientology, which the country does not recognize as a church.

Some critics of Tom Cruise maintain that one of his church’s members should not play what some consider one of the Nazi era’s few heroes.

Those critics can’t refute that Suri Cruise is so darn cute, though!

The weekend accident happened during filming of scenes around the Finance Ministry, which was once the Nazis’ aviation ministry.
