This year's Cannes Film Festival feels like it is slowly turning into a crime zone!
Last week, Christoph Waltz's life was seemingly in danger when blank gunshots were fired during an interview AND in another incident, sparkling Chopard jewels were snatched from a hotel room.
But the crime unfortunately hasn't stopped there!
It is now being reported that China Film Group vice president Zhang Qiang was forced to skip out on his press conference for Keanu Reeves' directorial debut in Man of Tai Chi because his luggage was stolen from his temporary digs at Pierre & Vacances Résidence Cannes Beach.
Why so much wrongdoing at the movie industry's most ritzy of film fests?

Hopefully this will give him something to smile about!
Keanu Reeves is reportedly getting off his sad bench and in negotiations with the China Film Group and Village Roadshow to not only star in, but also direct a film that he wrote, named Man of Tai Chi, which is a Mandarin and English language kung-fu story!
Apparently, the flick would also star Tiger Chen, who was part of the kung-fu team that helped the actor prepare for his iconic role in The Matrix!
