THE DEPARTED producer Graham King is recovering after being assaulted and robbed at the Hotel Du Cap during the Cannes Film Festival.
King returned to his private villa on the hotel's estate to find a gang of thieves rifling through his belongings. The intruders then turned to the filmmaker and reportedly sprayed him with CS gas.
The robbers made off with King's passport, money and other personal items.
A host of celebrities, including Martin Scorsese, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Harvey Weinstein, are staying at the exclusive hotel during the annual movie event.
