Around twenty hooded thieves attacked the film crew by launching fireworks at them, in broad daylight.
The cast and crew of Netflix French Original ‘Lupin’ got a bit shaken after about 20 armed robbers stormed their set and stole more than €300,000 (£250,000; $330,000) worth of equipment using fireworks.
According to a Netflix spokesperson, the incident occurred at the ongoing filming of the heist film’s third season in the Nanterre district, west of central Paris, forcing production to briefly pause.
No one was hurt including lead actor Omar Sy who was reportedly on set filming.
Agence France-Presse reports that the Police have arrested seven people associated with the robbery. The alleged robbers aged between 13 and 21 will now face armed robbery charges even as they continue to look for the rest of the gang and recover the stolen equipment.
‘Lupin’ will not be the first show to get robbed. Just a day before the Paris heist, armed robbers attacked the set of ‘The Crown’ series in South Yorkshire, United Kingdom carting away antique props valued up to £150,000.
