Crazy guy with a gun shoots at Cannes film festival

A man with a gun described as a "starting pistol" was arrested at the Cannes film festival today after firing the weapon during a live TV broadcast of a Canal+ show. Actors Christoph Waltz and Daniel Auteuil, who were being interviewed at the time, scampered off for cover. The armed man was also carrying a fake grenade and a knife, according to police. "It really appears to be a crazy guy," one police source told Reuters.


  1. I need to start watching the news… I’m French and that’s the first time I’ve heard about this. 

  2. Argh, my TV signal’s been down for a couple of days. I’m normally around to watch that show on and off. Totally missed it live !
