Washington, Dec 16 (ANI): Filmmaker Bryan Singer feared that Adolf Hitlers ghost had taken over his Valkyrie set after a runaway tank threatened to destroy thousands of dollars worth of sound and camera equipment.

While shooting a scene with Tom Cruise in Cougar Buttes in California, a tank was getting out-of-control and to avoid the container from crashing the equipment a stuntman had to be called in.

Singer reckons that Hitler was behind the controls of the armored vehicle.

“We had one tank that malfunctioned and it started rolling on its own. It started rolling towards the camera equipment and nothing was stopping it because its a tank and its meant to roll over camera crews and other things in its way, Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

“A very brave guy crawled in it and worked the brake system and got it to stop. Maybe the ghost of Hitler was in there!” the director added.

In the new film, Cruise plays a real-life German officer who led an assassination attempt on Hitler. (ANI)
