Argentina Thieves Snag Script for Ford Coppola's Next Film

The office of Zoetrope Argentina, director Francis Ford Coppola's newly formed production company, was robbed Wednesday evening, BBC reported. The thieves have stolen a computer from the US director, which contained the script for his new production Tetro. It was reported that five armed robbers raided Coppola's house in a wealthy neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, and took computers and camera equipment.

The Oscar-winning Godfather director was not home at the time. However, the raiders hit and threatened a person who was in the house, in the fashionable Palermo neighbourhood. A spokeswoman for Coppola offered a reward for the return of the computer, which she said was vital to him and his work.

Tetro, which will star Matt Damon, is about the rivalries over the generations in an artistic Italian immigrant family to Buenos Aires. Filming is due to start next February. The maker of the Godfather trilogy and Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now, has been living in Buenos Aires for several months, learning Spanish and working on his next film.
