If you're looking for a movie idea to pitch at the Cannes Film Festival, look no further: in 2009, a gang of men in Hawaiian shirts stole $19 million in jewels from Cartier, fleeing as a gang on motorbikes.  They were reportedly part of the "Pink Panthers" gang, a suspected criminal organization of former eastern European soldiers linked to over $233 million dollars of stolen goods over the last 20 years, which would be ridiculous if they didn't seem incredibly badass and devoted to Hawaiian-shirted crimes. How camera-ready are their heists? In a job in Biarritz, they painted a bench across the street to ward off potential witnesses with a "Fresh Paint" sign on the bench. Throw in Nicolas Cage, plenty of Cannes palm trees, and a lead Pink Panther villain, and this pitch is ready for Hollywood!
