Coppola robbed

Thieves in Argentina have stolen a computer from US film director Francis Ford Coppola, which contained his new script. The director was not in the house at the time, but he is offering a reward for the return of the information.

This report from Daniel Schweimler:

It wasn't in the script, but that might have to be rewritten now; five armed thieves broke into the house in the fashionable Palermo neighbourhood of Buenos Aires belonging to Francis Ford Coppola, hitting and threatening a person who was in the house at the time.

They took a number of items, including his computer containing the screenplay and other information for his next film, Tetro. It's about the rivalries over the generations in an artistic Italian immigrant family to Buenos Aires and will star Matt Damon. Filming is due to start next February.

A spokeswoman for Mr Coppola offered a reward for the return of the computer which she said was vital for him and his work. The five-times Oscar winner is reported to be very sad.

Coppola, the maker of the Godfather trilogy and the Vietnam war film Apocalypse Now, has been living in Buenos Aires for some months, learning Spanish and working on his next film. He's occasionally seen in public attending football matches.

However, he's not the first high-profile American to fall victim to Buenos Aires thieves. President Bush's daughter Barbara had her handbag and mobile phone stolen last year, despite the protection of US Secret Service agents.
