Finn Wolfhard experienced an unexpected “attempted robbery” during the filming of his directorial debut, Night Shifts, which ironically mirrors the short film’s plot.

Life imitated art in an uncanny twist for Finn Wolfhard, as his directorial debut, “Night Shifts,” was momentarily derailed by an “attempted robbery” on set. The “Stranger Things” star shared on Hot Ones a bizarre incident where a stranger wielding a fake gun interrupted filming at a convenience store, mirroring the film’s plot about a robbery leading to an unexpected high school reunion.

In a surreal standoff, the intruder and an actor, both armed with faux firearms, faced each other, leaving the crew and Wolfhard in disbelief. Remarkably, Wolfhard, consumed by his directorial role, swiftly called to proceed with filming post-intruder departure, showcasing his dedication amidst chaos. This comedy short, exploring the peculiar reunion of old friends through a comedic robbery gone awry, now carries an added layer of reality.
