The crime thriller “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,” stars Anthony Hopkins, Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington and Ryan Kwanten, and is set for a March 12 release in theatres in Australia.

The producers of Kidnapping Mr Heineken also produced, “Crazy Heart,” “Hysteria,” “Erased” and “Stuck in Love.”

Swedish director Daniel Alfredson, who helmed “The Girl Who Played With Fire” and “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest,” shot the film in Belgium, Amsterdam and New Orleans.

The film chronicles the 1983 kidnapping of Dutch beer magnate Freddy Heineken and his driver Ab Doderer. The two were released after payment of a record ransom of 35 million Dutch guilders — currently equivalent to $50 million.

The screenplay, written by U.K.-based William Brookfield (“Rough Magic”), is based on Peter R. de Vries’ book, which has been on top of the Netherlands bestsellers list for more than two decades.
