Troubled ’80s superstar Sean Young has returned the laptops she was accused of stealing from a Queens movie set last week.
A quick recap:
“Blade Runner” star Sean Young was booted off a low-budget movie she was directing after a squabble with staff – then exacted revenge by breaking into their Queens office and stealing their pricey production computers, a producer claimed Friday.
Production on the flick called “Charley Boy” had to be halted following the alleged heist at the film’s rented studio on 36th Avenue in Astoria, producer Timothy Hines told The Post.
“They broke and entered the place, Sean and her son, Quinn,” Hines claimed, saying Young had been trying to pick up some of her belongings from the office. “When she took her curtain and her table, she also stole two production computers, our editing computers, worth thousands of dollars and with information on our production.”
Young, 58, who played Harrison Ford’s replicant love interest in 1982’s “Blade Runner,” and a man in his 30s were caught on surveillance video allegedly stealing the Apple laptops – worth $12,000 – law enforcement sources said.
“You can see her stealing the computer equipment and going and coming and going as if it was 1945 and there aren’t cameras everywhere on 4K,” Hines added, referring to high-resolution cameras. He said the pair put the pilfered goods in the back of a black van before driving off.
Young has since claimed that it was all a big mistake and she simply grabbed the wrong computers, thinking they were hers.
But now she’s done the right thing and turned over the laptops through her lawyer, Reid Kahn. The charges against her will now be officially dropped Wednesday, he said, as the crew agreed to not punish the
“We wish Sean the best of luck,” Hines said.
“I’m glad we can finally put this behind us,” said movie’s co-writer Greg Kritkos.
“I wish her all the best,” he said. “Pray she gets the help she needs.”
