Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise and his ex-wife Nicole Kidman will be working on separate films in Berlin from September, German daily Bild reported on Friday.

Cruise earlier this month began shooting "Valkyrie", a film about a failed plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944, in which he portrays Nazi-resistance hero Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg.

Shooting is set to continue until the end of October.

The decision to cast Cruise in the role has caused anger in Germany because of his strong links to the Church of Scientology, which is regarded here as a sect.

Bild said Kidman will come to the German capital in September to start work on the film version of "The Reader", the award-winning 1995 novel by German author Bernhard Schlink which deals with later generations' difficulty in understanding the Holocaust.

Kidman and Cruise divorced in 2001. He has since married Katie Holmes and she country singer Keith Urban.
