Trailer: Anthony Hopkins in Kidnapping Mr. Heineken

After the enjoyable Rutger Hauer lead adaptation of the Freddy Heineken kidnap story, the tale gets a big screen version in Kidnapping Mr. Heineken. The project stars Anthony Hopkins, Sam Worthington, Jim Sturgess and Ryan Kwanten.

In 1983, a group of childhood friends pulled off the crime of the century: kidnapping one of the richest men in the world, the heir of the Heineken beer empire (Anthony Hopkins). The shocking capture—by gunpoint in broad daylight on the streets of Amsterdam—resulted in the largest ransom ever paid for a kidnapped individual. It was truly the perfect crime… until they got away with it. 

Kidnapping Mr. Heineken has no set UK release just yet, but expect it around March.
