Rutger Hauer 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.
