Zoetrope Argentina, director Francis Ford Coppola’s newly formed production company, was robbed Wednesday evening says Reuters.
Five armed thieves entered the building and took cameras and computers, including Coppola’s personal laptop, which contained drafts of the screenplay for “Tetro,” his upcoming film slated to begin production in Buenos Aires next year.
The film tells the story of rival Italian-Argentine artistic families, and will star Matt Dillon. Local reports say that Coppola is offering a reward for the laptop’s return. An employee received minor injuries during the robbery, Coppola was not present.
