Writer recalls truth, fiction of `Usual Suspects’


The story line on "Valkyrie" has focused on the " Tom Cruise -as-Nazi" angle, but it's also a notable regrouping of the two minds behind one of the most beloved movies of the last 15 years.

On "Valkyrie," the writer and director of " The Usual Suspects " reunite for their most substantial project together since their 1995 film. Back then, directorBryan Singer and writer Christopher McQuarrie crafted a movie that today ranks as the 21st most popular film of all time, according to rankings on Imdb.com .

The jaw-dropping ending of "The Usual Suspects" is firmly lodged in movie lore, but on Singer and McQuarrie's recent collaboration, the ending couldn't be more predictable. Tom Cruise plays would-be Hitler assassin Col. Claus von Stauffenberg in "Valkyrie," and, obviously, all plots to kill Hitler failed.
