Watch: Rutger Hauer in the Full Trailer for 'The Heineken Kidnapping'
Recently the Blade Runner star got down and dirty with the darkly funny and bloody romp Hobo with a Shotgun, but now Rutger Hauer is back in a more conventional thriller from the Netherlands. The Heineken Kidnapping tells the story of Alfred Heineken, the man who would build the beer empire of the same name. However, rather that following his rise to success and riches, the film chronicles three weeks in November of 1983, when Heineken, along with his driver, was kidnapped and held captive. Sadly the trailer below isn't in English (and lacks subtitles), but the visuals alone make this look damn good.

The Heineken Kidnapping is directed by Maarten Treurniet who also co-wrote the script with Kees van Beijnum. This is the duo's second collaboration after working on another Dutch film called Father's Affair. Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Batman Begins) stars in the film with a Dutch cast bringing this true story to life on the big screen. As of now the film is not slated for release in the United States, but will hit screens in the film's homeland of the Netherlands on October 27th.
