The star asked that anyone in touch with said robber persuade them to return the script – and his children’s medical cards – to Coach Films in Ealing, London.
“In the unlikely chance that anyone knows who broke into my car tonight and stole my bag, please try and persuade them to at least return my script,” he tweeted. “Many weeks worth of notes and ideas. And perhaps my children’s medical cards.”
