Quentin Tarantino isn't afraid of no home invasion. The iconic director, who is hard at work on his 9th feature film, came face to face with a couple of burglars that snuck into his house late Sunday night. Though he confronted the pair, they still managed to get away with some of his jewelry.
Tarantino made a name for himself in the 90s with back-to-back crime thriller hits Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. He knows a little something about the underground crime world of Los Angeles. And apparently, he's not afraid of a couple burglars. The pair reportedly broke into his Hollywood home on Sunday night, when he was attempting to take a rest from focusing on his upcoming drama Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Law enforcement has confirmed that Tarantino confronted the thieves, who got away with some of his jewelry. It's not stated how much the pieces were worth. Authorities involved with the situation are currently believed to be going over the surveillance footage that Tarantino captured on his home security system. The hope is to identify the two people involved with the crime.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood only recently wrapped principle photography, with the director now in the post-production process on the movie. It is set in the year 1969, following an aging actor and his stuntman against the backdrop of the notorious Sharon Tate murders conducted by the Manson Family. Starring in the film are Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, with Margot Robbie taking on the role of Sharon Tate. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is Tarantino's official follow-up to the 2015 movie The Hateful Eight, and is his second to last film as a director, if he indeed follows through on his filmmaking retirement plan.
Tarantino was in the news last month for something other than his movie work, though. He married Daniela Pick, whom he met while on his promotional tour for Inglourious Basterds back in 2009. It is not stated whether or not she was in the house at the time of the burglary. Apparently, a string of home invasions involving celebrities has been spiraling through the last half of this year. Already hit have been rappers Wiz Khalifa and Post Malone. Actress and former Disney Channel star Bella Thorne also had her home burgled.
The LADP have discovered a list of other potential targets, with warnings sent out. On the list of possible burglaries are Widows star Viola Davis, and Matt Damon, who isn't currently promoting any big projects this Christmas, but did serve as host this past weekend on Saturday Night Live. No further information in the Tarantino case has been revealed. This report came from The Independent.
