A French film shoot found no love in a Parisian suburb. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pierre Morrel's From Paris with Love cancelled its film shoot in the Paris suburb of Montfermeil, which has one of France's most dangerous housing projects.
The shoot was cancelled by writer-producer Luc Besson after it was discovered that ten cars belonging to his company Europacorp's production team, had been torched by arsonists.
"It's a real shame. The project should have been gratifying and valuable for everyone," the town's mayor, Xavier Lemoine, said Tuesday, who also added that 90 of the town's residents were set to serve as extras in the film.
The film, which stars John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys-Myers, was on schedule with an 11-week shoot in and around Paris. The film deals with an American covert agent who joins forces with an embassy worker on a mission.
