An interview with Christoph Waltz was interrupted by gunshots at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday.


The Django Unchained star was talking with reporters when all of a sudden gunfire was heard and the actor and other members of the Cannes jury were rushed off stage.

The incident occurred right before the live broadcast of Le Grand Journal, a French news show that airs every night during the festival.

The unknown gunman was immediately apprehended by police, and no one was injured as the shots were blanks.

It was initially reported that the sounds were actually fireworks, but those reports are NOT accurate.

Check out the scary video below.
