Informant Media’s true-tale thriller Kidnapping Mr. Heineken has been acquired by Alchemy, the company formerly known as Millennium Entertainment, which has set a March release in theaters and on VOD. Anthony Hopkins stars as the titular beer baron Alfred “Freddy” Heineken, who was kidnapped in Amsterdam in 1983 by five boyhood friends, resulting in the largest ransom ever paid.
Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington, Ryan Kwanten, Mark van Eeuwen, Tom Cocquerel and Jemima West also star in the Daniel Alfredson-directed film, adapted by William Brookfield from the best-selling book by Peter R. de Vries.
Alchemy will release the film March 6.
