Rutger Hauer's new movie will hit theatres on schedule on Monday (24Oct11) after a jailed crime boss lost his bid to block its release.
Willem Holleeder was part of a gang which kidnapped brewery boss Freddy Heineken in Amsterdam, Holland in 1983 and demanded a $35 million (Gbp22 million) ransom. The notorious crime is the subject of upcoming movie The Heineken Kidnapping.
Holleeder wanted the film's release stalled because he was unhappy with the way producers have represented him in the film, but, on Friday (21Oct11), Amsterdam District Court Judge Wil Tonkens rejected Holleeder's plea.
