Germany bans Cruise film shoot

Empty

BERLIN -- Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, the Defense Ministry said on Monday.

Cruise, also one of the film's producers, is a member of the Church of Scientology, which the German government does not recognize as a church. Berlin says Scientology masquerades as a religion to make money, a charge Scientology leaders reject.
