Christoph Waltz talks about gunfire incident in Cannes

FRANCE-FILM-FESTIVAL-CANNES Django Unchained actor Christoph Waltz witnessed a gunfire incident while being interviewed for France’s Le Grand Journal at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 17). He was speaking when a man started shooting but luckily nobody was hurt.

Waltz told Daily Mail: ”I was on a panel at the Studio Canal platform off the beach when a man produced a gun. I think it was a pistol and he fired but luckily for me they were blanks. Then he shouted he had a grenade and again luckily for me there was no grenade. The police have him. They tackled him to the ground. I don’t know who he was or where he came from or what his problem was.”

Actress Robin Wright noticed that something was going on but she didn’t see the whole thing. She said: ”I saw ambulances and police but I didn’t know what they were for. It held traffic up but I didn’t know the details till I heard it from Christoph.”

After the quick police intervention the program continued normally just a few minutes later.
