KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN First Look Image – GeekMundo

Former True Blood star Ryan Kwanten joined a relatively high profile cast whose ranks include Sam Worthington (Clash of the Titans, Avatar), Sir Anthony Hopkins (list of awesome films too long to list), and Jim Sturgess, for Alchemy’s Kidnapping Mr. Heineken, and we’re not talking about beer.  Well, yes and no.  In the 1980s, one of the heirs to the Heineken brewery fortune was kidnapped for a ransom most of us wish we could afford to pay, making it a big scandal for the time.  Kidnapping Mr. Heineken is based on that very true story, and we’ve got a look at the cast in a promo photo.
