Four thesps join Valkyrie

Tom Cruise’s plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler just nabbed a few more famous faces.

Because Bryan Singer has added four more thesps to World War Two drama Valkyrie to join a cast that already includes the Cruise and Kenneth Branagh.

Bill Nighy, fresh off spending months with dots on his face to play Davy Jones in the two Pirates sequels, Tom Wilkinson and Eddie Izzard are the Brits adding yet more quality to the movie. They’ve joined alongside Dutch actress Carice Van Houton, who has already had plenty of dealings with Nazis thanks to her role in Paul Verhoeven’s Black Book.

With a script from Chris McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander, Singer starts shooting in July.
