(HollywoodReporter) Roman Polanski has evaded a renewed extradition attempt by U.S. authorities that had asked the Polish government to seize the director during a visit to Poland, Agence France Presse reported on Thursday.
Polanski was questioned by prosecutors in Krakow on Thursday, but was then released, according to the report. Thursday's incident came after an attempt by U.S. authorities to have Polanski arrested when he traveled to Warsaw for the opening of a Jewish museum, it said.
He has been wanted by U.S. police since 1978 after leaving the country before he could be sentenced for having sex with a 13-year-old girl.
