Imprisoned Kidnapper Wants Rutger Hauer Film Injunction
A jailed crime boss has launched legal action to block a new movie starring Rutger Hauer because he's furious at the onscreen portrayal of his character.
Willem Holleeder was part of a gang which kidnapped brewery boss Freddy Heineken in Amsterdam, Holland in 1983 for a $35 million ransom.
The notorious crime is the subject of upcoming movie The Heineken Kidnapping - but Holleeder wants it injuncted as he's unhappy with the way producers have represented him in the film.
A court in Amsterdam has heard Holleeder wants to block the release to "protect his reputation."
The movie is due to hit cinemas later this month.
