CANNES — John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers will no longer be sending love from Paris, as the shoot for Pierre Morel’s “From Paris With Love” in the nearby suburb of Montfermeil — home to one of the nation’s toughest housing projects — has been canceled.

Ten cars belonging to Europacorp’s production team were found burned out by unknown arsonists, leading writer-producer Luc Besson and company to pack up their things and head out of the region.

The $55 million thriller about a young embassy worker and a U.S. secret agent on a high-risk mission in Paris was set for an 11-week shoot in and around the capital.

“It’s a real shame. The project should have been gratifying and valuable for everyone,” the town’s mayor, Xavier Lemoine, said Tuesday, adding that 90 residents were to have served as extras.

Europacorp said only that filming of the housing project scenes is suspended pending a review.

Note: Production has not halted. Interior shooting is still ongoing. The week long shooting in this particular Paris neighborhood has been suspended for now.
