‘Valkyrie’ back on ’08 slate

MGM moves Tom Cruise film to Dec. 26

As if Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner weren’t making enough news today, their “Valkyrie” is back on the 2008 slate.

MGM has moved the film to open Dec. 26, instead of the Feb. 13 date that was previously announced.

Sources close to events said the move was made for purely commercial reasons, after a screening of the film went well. The studio sees it as a holiday pic and award consideration was not a factor, they say. The film is directed by Bryan Singer.

Sony also shifted its Will Smith movie, “Seven Pounds” to Dec. 19, a week after its previously announced Dec. 12 bow.
